Follow these steps to resign from the BC Public Service.

Length of Notice

If your Collective Agreement or Terms of Employment don't indicate how much advance resigning notice is required, it should be 30 days notice per B.C. Resignation Regulation 132/77.

Letter of Resignation

Once you've identified your last day, send an email or resignation letter to your supervisor. This ensures your final pay cheque, vacation payout, and record of employment are ready after your last day of work.

Your resignation letter must include:

  • Your intention to resign from the BC Public Service
  • The effective date of resignation

To obtain your record of employment, contact Service Canada.

Bridging Service

To qualify for bridging your service, indicate in your resignation letter that you're leaving to care for a dependent parent, spouse or child.
