Community and Employer Partnerships
COVID-19 has changed how we work, and we are all doing our part to support economic recovery. Funding is available to increase employment opportunities for unemployed British Columbians and address local labour market issues.
To support recovery efforts, Community and Employment Partnerships (CEP) is prioritizing applications and funding projects that:
- Create work experience and training opportunities to prepare job seekers for available jobs
- Support an inclusive economic recovery in B.C. communities
There is no deadline and applications are accepted year-round, based on funding availability. The ministry responds to applications within 6-8 weeks. For further inquiries, please email
