WCG Services (part of the APM Group)
The power of work
For over 25 years, WCG Services has been partnering with governments and local agencies to create sustainable employment opportunities for people, businesses and communities. WCG provides jobseekers with the support and programs they need, and we connect employers to their next great hire. We understand that the power of work gives hope, strengthens families & fills hearts.
The partnership of knowledge
We believe that helping people embrace change can be a key to their success in making the transition to sustainable employment, and similarly, transformation can be an opportunity for our sector to meet the challenges of a changing world. We spend a lot of time looking closely at best practices from industry innovators to identify key elements of success. After a thorough process of collaboration, we then incorporate the most valuable component: the knowledge provided by local communities. This partnership of knowledge formula has proven itself in British Columbia where WCG is the largest provider of WorkBC Employment Services for the Government of British Columbia operating 16 WorkBC offices across the province, many with local partners.
