Getting ready for ASC: Employee Portal

The ASC employee portal website allows you to maintain your own contact preferences, view current offers, bid on shifts offers, and review your shift offer history. It can be accessed from a computer or a smartphone from anywhere with an internet connection.

Terms of use

The ASC terms of use will be displayed the first time you sign in. Scroll down to read the entire document, then click the checkbox to accept & click "OK".

ASC employee portal overview

1. Sign in to ASC employee portal

Using your web browser from work or home, go to https://vchshifts.vocantasonline.com/

When prompted, enter your VCH or other Health Authority network/webmail username and password. This is the same username and password used to access work computers and webmail.

2. Setup your ASC contact preferences

After signing in to the ASC employee portal you will be automatically redirected to the Contact Preferences page. You can also reach this page at any time by click on the main navigation button titled "Contact Prefs" on the left side of the screen.

3. Shift offers/History page

The Shift Offers page displays a table showing all shift offers that are still active, meaning that the employee can still bid on the offers. The History page shows the details of the past/closed shift offers.


Setting up your ASC contact preferences

After signing in to the ASC Employee Portal, you will be automatically redirected to the Contact Preferences. You can edit and save contact information for three methods of contact for shift offers: text, email and phone.


Turn notifications on/off

Under the Contact Methods column, you can set phone, text message or emails to be Active or Inactive at any time by clicking the radio buttons.

Time frame for notifications 

Select the time ranges you'd like to be contacted by each method. You can set custom preferences for weekdays (Monday to Friday), Saturdays and Sundays. 

Notification options

In the Notification Options section, you can:
  • Stop notifications for the remainder of the day – even if you are offering shifts for tomorrow or the next day
  • Receive a notification when you have bid on a shift but it has been awarded to someone else. This option will be checked by default
