About us

A bright future is dependent upon a healthy economy, which is built by citizens with the critical skills, knowledge and confidence to make informed decisions about their careers and finances. Every adult must consider debt, savings, budgets, mortgages and credit while building a rewarding career that will support their well-being and lifestyle.
However, according to a recent Statistics Canada report, Canadians owe $1.71 for every $1 they earn. In addition, BC is facing a skills shortage, especially for roles related to technology, and this demand for people isn’t showing any signs of slowing. It is important that youth are made aware of the financial, career and technical skills that they need for life-long success, as well as what careers will be in demand when they graduate and beyond.
JABC programs introduce students to a suite of skills while undertaking practical training on saving, spending earning, investing, business management, interviewing, resume writing and more.
