Who runs the Employment Program of BC?

The Ministry of Social Development administers the overall program; however, each WorkBC Employment Services Centre around the province is managed independently by community-based service providers who were chosen through a competitive bidding process. Before any contracts for the new Employment Program of BC were awarded, service providers had to demonstrate a clear understanding of the specific needs of the people living in their local area and identify how they were going to meet the needs of their communities.

There are 85 WorkBC Employment Services Centres across B.C., operated by 47 contractors who work with more than 300 service providers to deliver employment services across the province.

The Ministry is actively monitoring all of the Employment Program of BC contracts and is working with service providers to ensure they are delivering the full suite of services to those who need them.
