Effective January 11, employers will need to register and create an account with the National Job Bank. 

WorkBC’s job board is changing to serve you better. The Government of B.C. is partnering with Employment and Social Development Canada to co-deliver job board services. This means WorkBC.ca will soon have an updated job board, changing how B.C. employers register and post jobs, and enhancing how job seekers access job postings.

What’s changing for employers?

Employers will need to register and post jobs with the National Job Bank system. The job postings will then automatically display on WorkBC.ca for British Columbians to access. Job seekers will continue to search and view your job postings on WorkBC.ca.

There are several advantages with this change. Employers will:

  • Get more exposure to qualified job seekers from across Canada.
  • Continue to post jobs at no cost.
  • Be able to invite job seekers to apply to jobs and fill positions faster.
  • Receive real-time data on job posting progress.
  • Have postings available in both French and English.

Employers will continue to be able to access valuable employer resources on WorkBC.ca, including information on funding and grants, business resources and skills training programs. 

What do employers need to do?

Employers will need to register and create an employer account with the National Job Bank by January 11

Note: National Job Bank registration requirements differ from WorkBC.ca due to enhanced security.
