BC Youth Week Sponsorship Funding from WorkSafeBC

WorkSafeBC, a sponsor of B.C. Youth Week, is happy to once again offer sponsorship funding for B.C. Youth Week events. To qualify for funding, events must include a significant element of workplace health and safety for youth. If you have an event that will engage youth in learning more about possible workplace hazards and raise their awareness of workplace rights and responsibilities, we encourage you to apply. Please send in your applications by April 12. All requests will be reviewed and we will let you know if your sponsorship is approved by April 18. Questions? Contact

Student Safety Video Contest


Enter the WorkSafeBC student video contest for a chance at a $2500 prize!

It’s time to get creative! You have until March 29 to enter the 17th annual WorkSafeBC Student Safety Video Contest. This year’s contest theme, My Mental Health Matters ­– challenges youth to create a video showing what you need for your mental health at work.

If you’re a high school student, or if you work with youth, find all the details on the Student Safety Video Contest web page.

It’s easy to enter. Students can simply film their two-minute (or shorter) video (following COVID protocols, please), post their video to YouTube, then have their teacher or sponsoring youth organization send us the completed entry form.

There are four $2,500 cash prizes up for grabs thanks to sponsors Actsafe, London Drugs and Seaspan, plus the Actsafe Aspiring Filmmaker Award which offers the winner a behind-the-scenes tour of a local film or television production and a chance for their short film to be screened at a Directors Guild of Canada event, and more!
