WorkBC Centre Port Alberni provides free assistance and support for job seekers and employers in the Alberni Valley and surrounding communities. Our newly expanded office features a large self-serve resource area, conveniently located in Port Alberni’s uptown area next to Service Canada at 4th Avenue and Mar Street.
Our self-serve resources are available to all job seekers in the Alberni Valley, to update your resume, apply for jobs online, or use our printer, photocopier or fax machine. There are also available job search and job start supports for unemployed clients who are eligible and need help looking for work or getting started in a new job.
If you need more assistance than what is provided by our self-serve tools and resources, ask one of our Resource Centre Advisors about available WorkBC personal supports and services. Depending on eligibility, these include one-on-one employment counselling, group workshops, training supports, skills assessments, wage subsidy, self-employment services, and customized job placement. Employers too, are welcome to take advantage of available WorkBC employer resources to help you find and keep the workforce you need.
To get started, you can apply through the WorkBC online employment services website page, or just phone or drop by, and we’ll work with you to ensure you meet your employment goals!
