Notice

In response to the provincial state of emergency declared by the BC Government, our WorkBC Centres have been closed to the public, effective immediately.

While this is a difficult time for many people, we are pleased to announce that we will be providing services virtually. This is being done via phone appointments, email & social media communication.
