Component 3 - Community Social Services

BCGEU community-based social service workers provide supports, services, and resources to vulnerable families and individuals across the province.

They include community living workers supporting youths and adults with developmental disabilities, youth-at-risk, women services, child care, community justice services, First Nations family services, and employment services, among others.

BCGEU is the largest community social service union in BC, representing over 8000 workers in the sector.

Together with self-advocates, families, and agencies, BCGEU successfully advocated and negotiated for improved community living program funding – and improved contracts for the workers that support adults and youth with developmental disabilities.
