Job Seekers

We offer two types of free services to job seekers, self-serve and case management. We serve job seekers within both general and specialized populations including newcomers, youth, Aboriginals, persons with disabilities, Francophones, and survivors of violence.

To sign up for our services, drop in during our hours of operation with valid proof of SIN and one piece of picture ID. As registration paperwork is required, we recommend arriving earlier in the day so that you may receive assistance with the paperwork if needed. Depending on scheduling availability, interested job seekers may be able to meet with a Case Manager on the same day.

Self-Serve Services

As a self-serve client, you conduct your job search independently, but gain access to our Resource Room as well as a select number of job search workshops.

Eligibility for self-serve services:
Self-serve services are available to anyone who is of working age and actively seeking work.

Case Management Services

If you require more in-depth services and support to gain employment, case management services may be suitable for you.

A Case Manager will meet with you one-on-one to assess your employment readiness and job search needs, support you in identifying a realistic employment objective, and refer you to additional in-house and external services to help you sharpen your job search skills to achieve employment. These may include:

  • Access to the same services as our self-serve clients, including use of our Resource Room, PLUS:
  • Access to our full breadth of career planning, job search, and workplace communication workshops
  • Wage subsidy placement for eligible EI/EI reachback clients, Single Parent Employment Initiative clients, and clients with a disability
  • Skills training for eligible EI/EI reachback clients, Single Parent Employment Initiative clients, clients with a disability, and BCEA clients (in collaboration with our partner, Amber Education)
  • Self-employment training (in collaboration with our partner, PICS.)

Eligibility for case management services:

  • Legally allowed to work in BC (you will be asked for official proof of Social Insurance Number and one piece of picture ID)
  • Unemployed or working fewer than 20 hours a week* (*Some exceptions may apply; please contact us to learn more)
  • Not attending/registered for full-time school
  • Living in Burnaby, or have a valid reason to access services outside of your city of residence
