Important Update

During this unsettling time, the management and staff of WorkBC Maple Ridge are doing our best to provide ongoing support and services to our clients, to take care of staff, and keep all our stakeholders up to date.

To reduce the risk of spreading the virus, we are following the provincial and federal governments’ mandates around social distancing. We have shut our offices to walk-in traffic, closed our resource centre, and cancelled all workshops and events.

We will provide information and employment services online and by telephone. If in-person services are required, please call reception at 604-466-4600 or contact your Career Coach directly.  You can also contact us by email at info-mapleridge@workbc.ca with any questions or inquiries.
