Our Video Workshop was a Success! Waitlist for Next Workshop Now Open!
We had a great time with the group who joined us last week for the workshop led by Joanna Piros, "How to Create Your Own Business Video". 

We learned about the exciting ease and individual obstacles of developing your own video to promote your business. These businesses are now planning and producing their own rough videos that have the option to be professionally edited! They can then use their videos to promote their business online, including on our social media channels (YouTube, Facebook, Instagram) 

Another workshop is in the works, we are creating a waiting list and when we have enough interest, we will set a date. If this is something you'd like to participate in, send us an email and we will add you to the list!

 

Apply for the Employer Training Grant
Employer Training Grant

The B.C. Employer Training Grant provides funding to small, medium and large enterprises to support skills training for their new or current employees.

The intent of this program is to help British Columbians access the skills training required to adapt to the labour market's changing job requirements, while also encouraging employer involvement in skills training.

The Employer Training Grant helps employers pay for training, which in turn helps employees experience increased job security or move into better jobs.

Employers can apply as often as they need and may receive up to $10,000 per employee, with a maximum annual amount per employer of $300,000.
