Clean energy jobs

Making B.C. cleaner will create good jobs that support families and sustain our communities

Whether it’s generating clean energy, retrofitting buildings or designing new technologies, making B.C. cleaner will create good jobs that support families and sustain our communities. We need new skilled workers, and new skills to equip those already at work across the province.

We’re training people to get the skills they need to work in good-paying, clean-economy jobs – today and into the future.

Develop a CleanBC Jobs Readiness Plan to prepare for CleanBC career opportunities

  • Identify where additional support may be needed for lower income students, and tailored to meet the needs of Indigenous peoples, rural communities and workers
  • Work with post-secondary institutions to develop new, skilled workers, and provide new training opportunities for today’s workers

We are investing in two key sectors where we already know demand is strong and growing – cleaner buildings and cleaner transportation.

  • Developing programs like Energy Step Code training and certification and Certified Retrofit Professional accreditation
  • Expanding job training for electric and zero-emission vehicles
