Fraudulent recruitment scams


Beware of fraudulent recruitment scams posing as Vancouver Coastal Health

It has come to our attention that fake recruitment programs are claiming to be a recruitment service working with and offering positions on behalf of Vancouver Coastal Health in order to extract money from people in need of employment.  These types of job offers, and their association with Vancouver Coastal Health, are NOT legitimate. VCH does not use any third party recruitment services to fill physician, nurse, allied health professionals, or any other vacancies within VCH. DO NOT exchange any money with someone offering positions, placements or seminars  claiming to be in relation to Vancouver Coastal Health. In addition, do not give any personal information such as passport numbers or driver's licence numbers as this may result in identity theft. 

VCH has previously alerted potential applicants of other fraudulent activity where the fake recruiters used the name of Vancouver Coastal Health. Although not a factor in the current situation, please note our domain name is "," and NOT "" or any other variation. Any emails coming from "" or any other variation are fraudulent and should be reported immediately to   

Our recruitment process can be found in our "How to Apply" section located on our website. Physicians, nurses, and other allied health professionals seeking employment in BC generally are also encouraged to visit Health Match BC, a free recruitment service funded by the Government of British Columbia, to view and apply on postings throughout the province with the provincial Health Authorities.
