Newcomers to Canada
Our Responsible Adult Course helps newcomers to Canada find work. There is a high demand for child care workers in Canada due to a retiring workforce, and Covid-19 requirements for smaller group gatherings.
Our course can be taken online, in over 100 languages, and is sponsored by WorkBC, so you don't have to pay for the training yourself if you are an active job-seeker.
Contact your local WorkBC employment centre directly to make an appointment with a job coach. They can help you apply for funding. Also, many settlement agencies can help with finding job vacancies, updating your resume, writing cover letters, preparing for interviews and understanding what Canadian employers are looking for.
The Canada Job Bank is an excellent resource for finding work as a Responsible Adult. Use the keywords "responsible adult", or "childcare assistant" when conducting your job search to find positions you will qualify for.
