Big Info is the largest program expo and information session at BCIT. It’s your chance to find out about all our programs – from businesscomputing, and health to engineeringtrades, and applied sciences.

Join us online February 15 -17 from 4 pm

Learn about different programs each night. This winter, we’re hosting Big Info on Zoom for over three nights. Join us from the comfort of your home to explore multiple areas of study, learn more about what it’s like to study at BCIT, and find a program that’s right for you. Each night will cover specific industry sectors as well as key student services areas.

While the event may look a little different, you’ll still be able to hear from faculty and staff, and get all your questions answered without leaving your couch. Think of it as Big Info: At-home Edition.

The programme includes:

Bike Instructors Needed for Spring Break

Pedalheads is currently hiring instructors for the weeks of Spring Break (March 14-18 and March 21-25). It’s an awesome opportunity for students to get some hours and leadership/teaching experience. To qualify as a bike instructor, students do need to be turning 16 in the calendar year. If any students are interested in becoming an instructor for our Trail program, we require that they be turning 17 in the calendar year. We also have opportunities for younger students to volunteer during these weeks!

Do you want to make a difference for youth learning to explore forests while having fun volunteering? Joining the Volunteer Work Crew is an excellent way to build your skill set, gain experience working in a dynamic camp environment, and meet amazing friends. The Volunteer Work Crew members are integral to our team and provide critical support for camp programs. Volunteers split their time between assisting programs, facilities, and food services staff.

Volunteers help clear trails, assist with supervising recreation areas like the boat dock and climbing wall,
join the program staff team to lead overnight hikes, and so much more – all in the same day! Given that volunteers, staff, and campers stay onsite at the Evans Lake Forest Education Centre while camp is in session, the action never stops and, accordingly, applicants should enjoy working in ever-changing work environments. High energy, patience, a can-do attitude, and a passion for forests & working with youth are a must!

  • Volunteers also receive mentoring & coaching from senior staff

* We acknowledge that, for some Volunteer Work Crew applicants, this may be your first significant volunteer work experience. Not only can this role be a rewarding one, but the opportunity to practice researching about volunteer roles and communicating with Evans Lake (as the program host) is excellent for building your general employment skills. In order to support that process for you (the applicants), and for confidentiality reasons, we can only discuss an application with the applicant (i.e. we cannot discuss an application with family members, representatives, or agents). If you have any questions about the role or any aspect of your application, please don’t hesitate to contact us at volunteercoordinator@evanslake.com
