We Help BC Women Entrepreneurs
Fueling the success of BC women entrepreneurs since 1995
Women’s Enterprise Centre is a non-profit organization devoted to helping BC women start, lead and grow their own business.
Since 1995, WEC has fueled the success of women-led businesses by providing business loans up to $150K. We also provide business skills training, personalized business advice, mentoring, practical business resources and a supportive community to help women business owners gain the skills, mindset, financing and networks they need to realize their business potential.
Our team understands and relates to the unique circumstances of women business owners. Our experienced business advisors, mentors, trainers and facilitators provide our clients with tools and confidence through a supportive, individual and practical approach.
Worklink Employment Society is a visible and dynamic member of the Westshore, Sooke and surrounding areas that:
- Promotes an awareness of the current world of work and the need for life-long career development
- Provides a supportive environment where members of the community can explore new choices and create positive solutions to their employment needs
- Recognizes the value of the unique contributions of employees
- Encourages the belief that everyone has the potential to achieve self-sufficiency
- Serves with honesty, respect and integrity
WorkLink has been providing government sponsored employment services to the residents of the Western Communities since 1978. In 2008, our services expanded to include the communities of Sooke and surrounding areas including Jordon River and Port Renfrew. We are also pleased to provide aboriginal outreach services to the First Nations Communities of Beecher Bay, T’Souke and Pacheedaht.
Our non-profit organization is funded through both federal and provincial government initiatives. WorkLink is a registered charity in the Province of BC. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors chosen from leaders in the community.
In April 2012, WorkLink was selected to become one of the 73 WorkBC Employment Service Centres in BC. We currently offer employment services from either our Westshore storefront or our Sooke satellite office. In addition, we provide extended services to the community of Port Renfrew. Our two others locations, at Tennyson Avenue (Tennyson WorkLink) and on Goldstream Avenue (The Pathway Project) offer group employment programs.
