Links to Employment Program

Links to Employment helps job seekers with persistent and multiple barriers reach their goals of obtaining meaningful training, volunteer work, and/or employment. Employment can be central to recovery and growth as work is a structured, purposeful activity that can enhance self-esteem and a sense of well-being within society. Employment and education are also vital to fostering connection, wellness, and resilience for members of a diverse community.

Launched in 2020, the program is a partnership between the Canadian Mental Health Association and the University of BC.

Full details about the Links to Employment program can be found on the CMHA BC website. Click here to access.
