VICTORIA, B.C. – The Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction is making changes to improve WorkBC’s services.
According to the Government, the changes will offer better services for people who need support to re-enter the workforce, access training opportunities and to find good jobs.
Shane Simpson, Minister of Social Development and Poverty Reduction, says these changes will help those who are facing barriers when searching for work.
“Many people trying to find work face barriers to opportunity. They need a hand overcoming those barriers to take the next step to meet their goals. That’s why we are refocusing WorkBC on delivering results for people. Improving accessibility and moving to more personalized supports will make it easier for more people to find good, stable jobs so they can provide for themselves and their families.”
WorkBC provides employment services to people at centres throughout the province and online through WorkBC.ca. People can find local and provincial job listings, workshops, skills assessments and targeted programs that include training, work experience and wage subsidies.
