Important update

As of March 2020, we have suspended all in-person workshops until further notice, to reduce the threat to community health posed by COVID-19. We continue to offer the Youth in the Workplace workshop via Zoom.


Learning goals
  • There are legal protections for workers in BC under the Employment Standards Act and Human Rights Code, and there are limits on what an employer can or cannot legally do.
  • Despite this, unfair treatment in the workplace continues to happen, due to inequalities in society as well as power imbalances in the workplace.
  • If someone experiences unfair treatment at work, it is never their fault and there are resources (legal and non-legal) that can support them.


Who is it for?

The workshop is for young people who are working or looking to start working soon.


Who are the facilitators?

All of our youth workshops are delivered by education specialists on West Coast LEAF’s team. Our approach to facilitation is guided by our intentions and values.


How long is it?

The workshop is generally two hours. We can customize the length depending on the needs of your group.


How much does it cost?

We appreciate a $100 honorarium if you have the budget for that. We are committed to making our education programs accessible and can offer this workshop for free or for a lower fee if that would be better for you.

How can I book a workshop?

Please email to learn more or to book your workshop. Please contact us at least six weeks before your desired workshop date.
