This takes you to confidential counsellors. Vancouver Island Counselling is a non-profit society supported by local employers, unions and employee groups. We provide professional counselling to affiliated employees, retirees and eligible family members as part of a workplace benefit.
The BCTF operates a plan that provides both short- and long-term benefits to teachers who, due to illness or injury, are disabled from working. If the illness or injury is work-related, a WCB claim must be initiated.
The Federation's Health and Wellness program works with disabled teachers to assist them in their medical recovery and with return to work plans. It is a separate program from Health and Safety.
