WorkBC’s Find Your Fit Tour will be in Sechelt at Chatelech Secondary school on Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018, and open to the public from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“The Find Your Fit Tour stop in Sechelt will give students and parents an insider’s look at rewarding careers that will build a better future for themselves and their community,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. “I encourage anyone who is looking to find their place in B.C.’s diverse 21st century economy to go to Chatelech Secondary school and test-drive careers that will be in demand for years to come.”
The Find Your Fit Tour stop is a great hands-on experience for students, who get an insider’s look at a range of careers — including nurse, computer network technician, web developer, carpenter, electrician and heavy-duty equipment mechanic — needed in Vancouver Island-Coast region. It also provides valuable information about what jobs will be in high demand by employers throughout British Columbia.
Industries such as tourism, tech and health care will need a broad range of skilled British Columbians. The Find Your Fit Tour stop in Sechelt is a unique opportunity to get an insight into careers that are in demand by industries, and are important to building a strong, sustainable and innovative economy for the 21st century that works for everyone.
“100,000 job openings are expected in the Vancouver Island-Coast region in the next 10 years for youth and people in our community,” said Nicholas Simons, MLA for Powell River-Sunshine Coast. “The Find Your Fit Tour is an exciting opportunity for people to experience in-demand careers first hand, and find out more about the education and training they need to achieve their goals.”
The Find Your Fit Tour builds on the government’s commitment to provide British Columbians with the services they need by giving them the information to help them make decisions about education and training. The tour will make its way throughout the province until the end of March.
The Find Your Fit Tour and WorkBC.ca are the first steps for all British Columbians on a journey to discovering information about a variety of exciting careers that will build a better future for individuals, families and communities, and will help build a better B.C. for everyone.
