Job Creation Partnerships
Job Creation Partnerships provide funding to organizations to assist with local projects that provide useful work experience and skill enhancement opportunities to eligible job seekers to help them obtain sustainable employment. Projects should benefit the job seeker, community and the local economy; however, the primary focus must be on helping the participant.
At the end of their participation in a Job Creation Partnership project, the job seeker will have recent work experience and additional skills to add to their resumes, increasing their chances of successfully finding sustainable employment.
The following organizations are eligible to apply for funding:
- Non-Profit Organizations
- Crown Corporations
- Municipalities, Agencies or Territorial Governments
- Band/Tribal Councils
- Public Health and Educational Institutions
Projects may last up to a year, and organizations may be reimbursed for project-specific overhead costs incurred (e.g. materials and supplies, rental of equipment and other eligible expenses negotiated with program officials). Eligible participants will be referred to a Job Creation Partnership project from the local WorkBC Employment Services Centre.
