Programs and Services

Today’s workplace presents opportunity and challenge in equal measure. New knowledge, skills and learning delivery methods required for today’s borderless workplace serve as a catalyst for a more innovative society.

Increasingly, we have been asked to share our specific experiences around employer engagement, program development and administration, integrated online services, capacity building, governance and the other key factors that have contributed to our success as an organization. Finding our voice in a climate of continuous change has not been easy. Yet, what we realize is that ETHOS has knowledge and experience that can add value to the employment sector, help to guide future trends and approaches, and help to strengthen our case for support in the future.


Across all of the services and programs that we offer, there is one consistent objective: employment. This past year, 86 per cent of our clients found employment or achieved their training objectives. With this end goal in mind, ETHOS has built a model of integration that optimizes services for our clients, while maximizing the various resources and expertise available across various programs. The foundation for the delivery of our core services includes employment preparation, job search, referral and resource services, job search workshops, employment counselling, informational and resource support, and perhaps most significant, employer engagement.

ETHOS has run multiple programs focused on this area of employment training, including the Targeted Initiative for Older Workers, Grey Skills, and the Urban Older Works Program.

ETHOS is also partnered with Worksafe BC to help support employment services in all communities.
