NEW- Work in the health care sector - Province of British Columbia (

How to get your career started

COVID-19 has increased the need for health care assistants in long-term care, home support and assisted living services.

Normally, to become a health care assistant, you must complete six to eight months of post-secondary education at your own expense before you can apply for a position.

Through the Health Career Access Program, the Province will pay for your post-secondary education.

New hires in the program start in a health care support worker position and receive paid training that leads to full qualification as a health care assistant.​
