This designation recognizes BC employers that offer exceptional places to work. Learn how we offer a workplace where our employees make a difference by delivering on our vision: province-wide solutions for excellence in health, every time.
It is the ninth consecutive year that PHSA has been recognized as one of BC's Top Employers and we could not be more proud. As an organization that delivers specialized health care services across the vast geography of beautiful British Columbia, this designation holds a very special meaning to us.
The BC's Top Employers designation is part of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project, which recognizes Canada's best places to work. The project aims to identify the companies and organizations that lead their industries in attracting and retaining employees.
For those looking for a workplace where they can make a difference, PHSA offers many diverse opportunities across the province. Working with the province's five regional health authorities, the First Nations Health Authority and the BC Ministry of Health, PHSA plans and coordinates the delivery of specialized health care.
It does this through a network of agencies, services and programs, such as the BC Cancer Agency, BC Emergency Health Services, BC Mental Health & Substance Use Services, the BC Centre for Disease Control, the BC Women's Hospital + Health Centre and the BC Children's Hospital, among many others.
