Our goal is to make the transition for clients to the New Employment Program for BC as smooth and seamless as possible to ensure everyone in need of job search assistance has the appropriate tools and skills to be successful.
The new WorkBC Employment Services Centres will integrate all services currently offered through a single door and make it easier to help people find work and provide stability for their families. No unemployed British Columbian will be left behind because the new service providers must ensure that everyone has access to the same services, regardless of where they live in the province.
All service providers will determine the best way to ensure effective service delivery to specialized populations and smaller communities. As a result, specialized populations – including immigrants, youth, Aboriginal people, Francophones, persons with disabilities, survivors of violence, persons with multiple barriers and people living in rural and remote areas – will receive the full suite of quality services through the new integrated centres regardless of where they live.
Each employment centre will be able to make use of various service channels to better serve their clients. There will be 85 storefront locations and another 114 satellite offices. Many locations will also use mobile services and outreach for specialized populations or those living in remote areas. The ministry will set up an expert advisory panel to monitor how the new model works for British Columbians, and a panel of specialized experts to examine how the model is working for clients with specialized needs, such as those with disabilities or clients with multiple barriers to employment.
The Province will invest $341.2 million in employment services for 2011-12. The new employment centres support the government’s Families First commitment and BC Jobs Plan, which will strengthen the economy, creating and protecting jobs for British Columbians.
