The Vancouver Island Works Project provides services to both businesses, and individuals, in the community who are looking to: start a business, improve an existing business, or gain the skills to succeed.
Created to bridge the gap between people seeking employment and skills shortages. We work with for-profit businesses, non-profits, and vocational rehabilitation agencies to offer community driven education courses and workshops that provide the skills to transfer careers, or succeed in your current one.
After spending years in the technology and training industries we found that we really enjoyed working with members of the community. We enjoyed not only providing training, but being there as a business resource. People were coming to us for marketing, website creation, sales training, and tools to help them either start a small business, or improve an existing one.
As a team, we started taking on a lot of these projects. We decided that instead of working in one type of industry vertical, we would expand our offerings to be able to work closer with all members of the Community. With that the Vancouver Island Works Project took flight.
The Project is a unique business model that leverages the strengths of our members to provide consulting and services to both small and large businesses.
