Cash for job training

Want a job, but don't have the proper training?

Up to 60 British Columbians in Vernon and surrounding areas are receiving the training they need for jobs in their communities.

The federal-provincial partnership under the Canada-B.C. Job Fund Agreement has provided $416,000 to Okanagan College to speed up training. 

The training will help prepare for jobs in bookkeeping and office administration. 

It's part of an investment of more than $12 million for 49 training projects that will benefit about 2,000 British Columbians throughout the province, says a statement form the B.C. government.

“Office administration personnel and bookkeepers are in demand in our region," said Eric Foster, MLA for Vernon-Monashee. "The Fast Track to Office Training Program, delivered by Okanagan College with support from the Province, is excellent news for our local employers, as well as job seekers."

B.C. is expecting almost one million job openings by 2025.
