Employment Services

S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Employment Services (SES) started to assist job seekers to overcome employment barriers in 1984. From job finding club service helping only Chinese Immigrants to prepare resumes, SES is now a culturally diverse service team providing career development guidance services for all job seekers. Based on social work values, SES has incorporated a client-centered, behavioural oriented case management model to serve clients. In addition to various programs and services, SES has also developed a virtual resource website to give job seekers easy access to online resources. This range has made SES more accessible and user friendly.

With a diverse team of qualified, skilled and passionate staff in multiple locations, SES delivers services in a culturally sensitive manner to job seekers regardless of their cultural background and level of English language skills. Using a holistic service model that brings individuals, community partners and employers together, SES has helped job seekers achieve their career goals in today's highly competitive labour market.

FCR Loan Project

The Foreign Credential Recognition (FCR) Loan Project was established as a bridging tool for ITPs undergoing the accreditation process. Our project’s mandate is not only to provide financial assistance, but to also offer guidance, labour market resources and to be an encouragement to ITPs. Each step of an accreditation process varies from each profession. The FCR team will work with you to create an accreditation plan that is realistic and goal-oriented.


For many Internationally Trained Professionals (ITPs), the cost of licensing exams, training and skills upgrading can present a significant barrier to credential recognition. Using a client-centered approach, the FCR Loan Project provides financial assistance to ITP’s to lessen some of these burdens, making it easier for ITPs to find jobs that best suit their professional skills and experiences.


Qualified applicants may apply for loans ranging from $1,500 to $15,000. If approved, a flexible and sustainable repayment schedule will be set up.

Eligibility:

  • Canadian citizenship or permanent resident, residing in BC
  • Possess proof of a professional credential/designation or trades-related certificate obtained in a country other than Canada
  • Credit worthy and loan eligible for credentialing purposes; and
  • Have no or limited Canadian experience in the related field due to a lack of foreign credentials.
