Do I qualify for services if I am a full-time student?

Full-time secondary or post-secondary students are not considered unemployed. The exception to this is Students with disabilities in their final year of high school or post-secondary education who require Program Supports to be able to find employment.

To access Employment Program of British Columbia (EPBC) services youth must meet the following criteria:

  1. have left or have completed secondary or post-secondary schooling (except for students with disabilities as above);
  2. are underemployed (working less than 20hrs/week)
  3. are not planning on returning to public or post-secondary school, and
  4. are transitioning into the workforce

However, everyone is welcome to use our self-service area and can access an Employment Counsellor for any employment related assistance.
