Many individuals CLBC serves want to work. The Community Action Employment Plan (the Plan), launched in March 2013, reflects the input and efforts of hundreds of people across British Columbia who are working collaboratively to increase employment for the people CLBC serves.
The plan’s three-year goal was to assist 1,200 more people to access employment.
As of March 2016, CLBC and all of its partners were pleased to acknowledge that we had exceeded our goal, with data showing 1,800 more people reporting income for a total 4,000 people (21 per cent of people CLBC serves).
CLBC and its partners recognize there is still much work to be done. We’ve set a new three year goal of 25 per cent of CLBC-served individuals reporting income, or about 5,000 people. You can read about the first two years of achievements for the Plan here.
The Community Action Employment Plan – Priorities 2016-2019 outlines which key initiatives from the Plan released in 2013 will be the focus for the next three years. This includes implementing the development of local employment plans across BC.
There is a role for everyone to play in helping to build more inclusive workplaces across BC.
