Gateway College is excited to share further news forwarded to us by the Registry about the BC Government’s investment in individuals that chose to join the Health Care Assistant workforce.


The attached memo outlines information on the new HCA Recruitment Incentive for students completing Health Care Assistant (HCA) Programs in BC, who take up employment within an eligible sector, and who commit to a 12-month return-of-service (ROS) with the province. Eligible participants will receive a $5,000 recruitment incentive, administered by Health Match BC (HEABC) through its Choose2Care HCA initiative.


The attached memo includes information on the Recruitment Incentive, including eligibility details and instructions on how to apply. Please click this link.


We were asked to distribute this memo to current students and graduates of your programs that started their Health Care Assistant (HCA) program between January 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021. If you started your HCA program during this period, please make sure to read the memo and don’t miss out on the opportunity to receive a $5,000 recruitment incentive.
