Community and Employer Partnerships

“Since the launch of the Employment Program of British Columbia in April 2012, the Ministry of Social Development has begun implementing an initiative known as Community and Employer Partnerships.

The purpose of this initiative is to increase employment opportunities for unemployed British Columbians through the use of agency and business partnerships, shared information and technology, and innovative processes and practices.

Community and Employer Partnerships will foster collaborative, coordinated networks of community organizations and employers across the province. These networks will work to:

  • promote and simplify communication between stakeholders
  • help the easy and quick flow of local labour market information
  • ensure strategic, coordinated approaches to investing the necessary employment support in communities
  • provide opportunities for stakeholders to discuss strategies and solutions to address labour market needs

Community and Employer Partnerships will also provide labour market information to communities and employers so that they can better address the needs of the community and help create jobs.

This labour market information will also help communities and employers in submitting requests to the Partnership and Innovation Fund. This fund is administered by the Ministry of Social Development and consists of four streams:

  • Job Creation Partnerships
  • Labour Market Partnerships
  • Research and Innovation
  • Project Based Labour Market Training”

Details regarding Community and Employer Partnerships are taken directly from the following website:

  • Canada
  • British Columbia
  • WorkBC

The Employment Program of British Columbia is funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia.
