The WorkBC Wage Subsidy program is an opportunity for employers to re-hire laid-off employees, hire new employees and connect with WorkBC clients looking for work experience and job opportunities.

The WorkBC Wage Subsidy program offers an opportunity to employers by: 

  • Covering a portion of employee wages
  • Providing disability supports to reduce work-related barriers for an employee
  • Re-hiring/recalling laid-off employees


The program offers benefits to job seekers with:

  • Paid work experience opportunities
  • On-the-job training

  • Possible long-term employment options

Subsidy rates depend on an individual’s situation. Get in touch with us for more information about the Wage Subsidy program.

To meet the requirements of the wage subsidy program, the employer must:

  • Provide the employee with approximately 35 hours per week, full-time employment with the potential of long term attachment
  • Provide on-the-job training, support and supervision as needed to gain skills
  • Have WorkSafe BC account in good standing
  • Complete a signed agreement PRIOR to hiring an employee
