In-person employment services will reopen on a limited, appointment-only basis beginning September 14. No group services are planned at this time but clients can request individual services by appointment at ISSofBC locations in Vancouver, Coquitlam, New Westminster and Surrey. One-to-one and group remote services will continue to be available in the same locations.
The reopening of in-person employment services follows that of settlement services which reopened at the end of July. New or returning clients can check out the available programs by visiting the ISSofBC Programs during COVID-19 webpage. Resumption of in-person self-employment services and LINC training – which continue to be delivered online or by phone – will be announced later.
Clients booking or arriving for appointments will be expected to answer a number of health-related screening questions and provide critical personal information to facilitate virus contact tracing should that become necessary. For everyone’s protection, they must also arrive wearing facial masks (both adults and children over two years old). Please check out the ISSofBC Return-to-Workplace Safety Plan.
