New labour market tool launched

WorkBC.ca is the single access point for all B.C. government employment and skills training information, programs and services.

Job seekers, parents, educators and employers in B.C. now have more tools and information to help them explore career options, find jobs, improve skills and connect with talented employees, thanks to the launch of the enhanced WorkBC.ca website.

People looking for work can access a new labour market navigator tool that allows them to explore opportunities by region or industry, and a new online video series, called Career Trek, provides in-depth profiles on a variety of in-demand careers.

In addition, the entire website has been completely redesigned to improve navigation and search functions, as well as accommodate mobile devices.

“Government is committed to providing up-to-date labour market information and services to help British Columbians explore career options, find jobs and improve their skills,” said Shirley Bond, jobs minister.

“As the primary source of employment information in the province, the revamped WorkBC website is a critical tool to help British Columbians succeed in this growing economy.”

WorkBC.ca also provides employers across the province with information to help support and grow their business, as well as find employees through free job postings.
