These programs are designed by professional agencies in partnership with the Province to support individuals to take steps toward independence and self-determination. INEO is proud to facilitate programs that offer a supportive environment and flexibility to work with the individual needs of those who are participating.
Each program is unique in nature and has specific eligibility requirements, select any program of interest to find out more information, or feel free to contact us directly.
Employment Program of BC
The Employment Program of BC (EPBC) is a comprehensive employment program that provides employment services and supports designed to meet the needs of individual BC Employment & Assistance clients who are deemed Expected to Work (ETW) or Expected to Work-Medical Condition (ETW-MC). As a Contractor through Island Work Transitions, INEO will conduct an interview with the client to determine the level of intervention required to achieve EPBC Employment.
The Ministry's objectives for the EPBC are:
- Clients who are employable will be assisted to reach Independence as quickly as possible through sustainable employment;
- Clients who have barriers to employment will be assisted to achieve progress through increased employability and connections with community services; and
- The Ministry will achieve improved administrative efficiency in employment programming.
