The province is investing $8.4-million to boost healthcare support for seniors.

"We're moving forward with our plan to expand the number of healthcare assistants working in B.C. to strengthen the level of care for people in longterm care homes and assisted-living residences," said Health Minister Adrian Dix. "The Health Career Access Program is underway and is already helping train workers for some of the most important jobs in B.C."

Government's investment is creating the first 600 new training seats at public post-secondary institutions. In addition, students who are currently completing a recognized healthcare assistant program and who choose to take employment in the longterm care or assisted-living sector, and commit to a 12 month return of service, will be eligible for a recruitment incentive of $5,000.
