COVID-19 Resources

Employer and Business Resources

North Island Employment recognizes the signficant impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on employers, businesses and their staff across the Vancouver Island North region in which we serve. 

Although our physical offices in Campbell River and Port Hardy are currently closed to the public we are still providing services and supports virtually and by phone and that includes our Employer community.  We continue to be available and ready to help in any way we can. 

We also understand at a time when many employers are faced with closures and staff layoffs others are faced with the need to hire particularly those considered essential services.  Please know, that we are more than happy to talk to you about options and how we can help.

In addition to being able to contact us directly through our toll-free number at 1-866-286-6788 with any questions you may have we have also compiled a list of resources that may be helpful during this very challenging time.

Stay healthy and safe from the whole team here at NIEFS!
