WorkBC Open Door Group Kamloops
Through an employment Service Partnership with WorkBC, a collaborative and integrated inter-
agency employment services framework has been developed. KIS and the Open Door Group
Kamloops (WorkBC) Counsellors work with clients with language proficiency and program
eligibility to review the client progress towards employability to provide a continuum of service,
rather than duplication of effort. Clients continue to meet with KIS Intercultural Employment
Counsellor as often as needed.
The partnership allows our clients to move from one agency to the other with full support,
opens-up their eligibility for more services, and gives them opportunities they may not get from
one agency alone.
A KIS employment counsellor spends one day per month with the Open Door Group counsellor
for debriefing, program monitoring and evaluation. This time allows for collaborative work
between Work BC and KIS to develop the best plan for success with and for the client.
