WorkLink Employment / WorkBC

Our non-profit organization is funded through both federal and provincial government initiatives. WorkLink is a registered charity in the Province of BC. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors chosen from leaders in the community. In April 2012, WorkLink was selected to become one of the 73 WorkBC Employment Service Centres in BC. We currently offer employment services from either our Westshore storefront or our Sooke satellite office. In addition, we provide extended services to the community of Port Renfrew. WorkLink is your one stop shop for all your job search needs. Whether you are looking for work, considering changing careers or even thinking about self employment, our friendly and professional staff are here to help you. As a WorkBC Service Centre, you can find a wide variety of free programs and services to fit your situation.
