"The WorkBC Centre and the wage subsidy services has been a very positive and rewarding experience for our business.  The wage subsidy program not only helped to cover the new worker’s wages during the training time,  but it also made it easier to justify the cost of taking someone away from their regular work to do the training.
The WorkBC Employment Services Centre was excellent in helping with everything required to qualify and complete the program. I couldn’t be more pleased with the helps we have received from them."

- Mary Reeves, FTH International Sales Ltd.


"The Cloverdale WorkBC centre was quick to assess our requirements and even quicker to connect us with Lisa, who was seeking a position in accounting.   The wage subsidy along with the support and guidance received by the WorkBC centre, assisted us a great deal.   I am happy to say that Lisa is now a permanent and important member of our team.  We would definitely utilize this service again."
