COVID-19 Resources & Information

North Island Employment recognizes the signficant impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on everyone across the Vancouver Island North region in which we serve. 

With the ongoing efforts to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus and recommendations from all levels of government and the World Health Organization, the physical North Island Employment WorkBC offices in Campbell River and Port Hardy will be closed to drop in services.  We are currently working with clients on a case by case basis for those who need access to the Resource Centre or in-person services.  All in-person services are reviewed and considered based on need and are scheduled appointments.

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!
