Wage Subsidy Program

The WorkBC Wage Subsidy program provides an employer with a wage subsidy to offset costs of hiring while you gain valuable on-the-job training and work experience.

Why wage subsidy?

You are motivated and enthusiastic but perhaps lack the experience or required skills for the position. You can promote yourself to employers by letting them know you are wage subsidy eligible while you receive on-the-job training. You could land a job that leads to a long term career!

Unemployed job seekers are eligible for a wage subsidy position if:

  • you are a resident of British Columbia and reside in the Alberni Valley and surrounding communities.
  • you are legally entitled to work in Canada.

If you are a job seeker and think this may be a good fit, call our local WorkBC Centre at 250.724.4560 to schedule an appointment with an Employment Counsellor.

If you are an employer interested in learning how your organization may benefit from the WorkBC Wage Subsidy program, be sure to contact our Wage Subsidy Coordinator at 250.724.4560 ext. 225.
