Indigenous Youth Internship Program
Every year, we provide a 12-month paid internship for up to 25 young Indigenous British Columbians. Our aim in providing this opportunity is to help them build professional skills and networks, get a taste for pursuing a career in government, and above all, awaken their capacity for leadership. We want to support our young people who want to make a difference and empower them to lead their communities and our province into the future.

A chance to give back. Every day, the work of the BC Public Service has a positive and profound impact in B.C. communities. But our employees also contribute with more than their jobs. Each year, our employees are actively involved in raising funds to assist people in need in all regions of the province. The Provincial Employees Community Services Fund (PECSF or Community Fund) was founded in 1965 with a mission to coordinate a workplace fundraising campaign that enables BC Public Service employees to support local charitable organizations that strengthen our communities.
Provincial government employees have the ability to donate to a variety of organizations of their choosing, or to give to the fund in general. Employees have engaged in many innovative special events throughout the years. All levels of the public service create opportunities to socialize and raise money to give back to the community.
The Premier's Innovation and Excellence Awards, one of several BC Public Service recognition programs, showcase and celebrate outstanding BC Public Service employees whose professionalism, dedication and innovation have made a difference in many lives and communities in B.C.
