We are currently looking for multiple Home Share providers (contracted) in our Foster & Kinship Care (Child in Care Services) division, for various areas within BC. Areas include:

  • Okanagan area

As an individual passionate about changing lives for the better through hard work, personal caring and good ideas, you’ll find hundreds of kindred spirits at WJS offices across Western Canada and Ontario.  For over 30 years, WJS Canada has worked within our communities as a trusted provider of services to children, youth, adults and families facing difficulties. We’re the only national private service agency in Canada. Our employees are our owners. Every day, more than 600 WJS Canada staff serve over 1,000 people in three provinces.  We’re committed to building strong communities by providing a complete range of innovative and effective professional services. We lead and manage partnerships with governments and consultants, families and community organizations.




Do you love working with children, youth and families?

Do you have a desire to make a difference?

Do you want to be part of a dedicated team?


If you answered yes, WJS is looking for YOU!


We offer an extensive orientation process that ensures you are prepared, and once you join us, we will have support available to you 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.  In this role, you can also access additional training opportunities to further develop your skills in providing assistance to others in need.  Our model of providing specialized residential care is to provide young people with a safe, nurturing and healthy family home environment, coupled with one-to-one support.  It is radically different to the traditional foster care model, primarily due to the level of support and supervision provided to the family home.


WJS is looking for people that are dedicated to delivering supports in and out of their homes, and want to make a difference in the lives of children and youth.


We are looking for people who possess the following essential requirements:

  • Valid CPR/First Aid certificate (or will obtain prior to contracting)
  • Valid Mandt and/or Non Violent Crisis Intervention certificate
  • Current Conflict Resolution training
  • Prior professional and/or personal life experience with children and/or youth living in the foster care system or professional experience working with individuals with a developmental disability
  • Prior experience in trauma informed care is an asset
  • Must provide a current (dated within past 3 months of contract date) criminal record check and ministry check prior to confirmation of contract.


Suitability of the applicant will be determined through a rigorous screening process based on an agency interview and a screening by the supported individuals (and any persons in the home), reference checks, submission of required documentation (including criminal record search by local police, vulnerable sector check, Ministry of Justice check, MCFD Prior Contact Check, current first aid certification, immunization records, TB clearance, SAFE home study, SAFE baby training-as applicable, willingness to complete foster parent training-as applicable, and a medical fitness confirmation).


Contract amount is compensatory and will be discussed once initial screening is completed.


Deadline for applications is June 1st, 2017, or until suitable candidates are found. 

Please apply with a resume and covering letter (outline education, experience and references).
