The Wage Subsidy Program is a program that assists individuals in securing long-term employment by supporting direct work experience. WorkBC Job Developers can negotiate an agreement with an employer that will subsidize part of the new employee’s wages. The subsidy amount varies and depends on a number of things, including: the hourly wage rate and the number of hours worked weekly.

As an employer, how do I use the Program?

In order to be eligible for the program, employers must:

  • Have up-to-date WCB coverage and be in compliance with WCB regulations
  • Be willing to provide full-time employment (minimum 35 hours per week)
  • Have been in business for more than a year (or have had previous business experience)

It is important to note that a contract must be in place before a client starts employment.

For more information on how to access the wage subsidy through one of our Work BC offices , please contact the office nearest to you and ask to speak to one of our Job Developers .
