Paid Work in BC’s Non-Profit Housing Sector
A new Housing Match website has been launched to pair people laid off due to the COVID-19 outbreak and non-profit housing organizations requiring staff to provide essential services.
Thanks to the BC Non-Profit Housing Association, Vancity and catalyst Community Developments, this initiative comes at the right time for many residents and communities.
People are encouraged to apply even if they do not have experience in the non-profit housing sector as training and education opportunities are available.

BC Boosts Digital Library Services
The province of British Columbia will invest $3-million to enhance digital library services as bricks and mortar library branches remain locked down due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The BC Libraries Co-operative will receive $1.8-million of these funds to support electronic resource licencing and help expand online common collections for all B.C. public libraries.
The additional $1.2-million will go directly to libraries to enhance and expand digital connectivity, boost online library programs, ebooks, magazines and training all available with the use of a library card.
