Employment Now Program Benefits
The free program connects people with the support, training and services they need to gain a competitive edge in their industry and increase their chances of landing a good job.
All participants receive two weeks of virtual group-based workshops and industry specific training followed by 3 months of one-on-one job search support.
The workshops cover resume and cover letter preparation, job search skills along with interview techniques. Sessions are offered monthly and you can participate from the comfort of your home.
Participants who successfully finish the workshop series are also eligible for a $300 completion bonus as well as further bonuses upon landing a job.
In addition, the program offers financial support to help you with clothing and transportation for interviews and when you start that job.

The upcoming date for the program is:
Spots are limited, so you must register in advance to secure a seat. All workshops are held online between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
If you know someone who might be eligible for the program you can refer them and receive $100 in cash if they successfully complete the workshop series. Multiple referrals are accepted, which means more money in your pocket!
The employment program is available for those aged 17 (or soon to be) to 29 living in the lower mainland. Participants must be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or have refugee status.
