Created By: UBC Learning Exchange


Embers Eastside Work was launched in April 2018 as a social innovation pilot program that responds to the gap in employment services in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside neighbourhood. Embers Eastside Works is a “Income Generation Hub” that aims to generate income for those with barriers to traditional work. This program offers support in achieving personal employment goals, various work opportunities for those with different needs and abilities, and also collaborates with different community organizations and the local government to support the DTES community. They offer one-on-one programming to support a variety of needs. A unique program offers employment within partner organizations, mainly local social enterprises and non-profit organizations, to help ease the transition into long-term work.

One such example of connecting with other organizations is Work BC drop in. Every Tuesday, a WorkBC staff member will be available at Eastside Works to answer questions and offer information and resources.


COVID Update:
At this time, all EMBERS Staffing Solutions operations remain active as before, with extra vigilance and care being paid to ensuring the health and safety of our workers, clients and staff.
