Beware: Fraudulent Recruitment Scams posing as Vancouver Coastal Health in your application journey.
It has come to our attention that fake recruitment programs are using the name of Vancouver Coastal Health, or claiming to be a recruitment service posting positions on behalf of Vancouver Coastal Health, in order to extract money from people in need of employment. These types of job postings and offers, and their association with Vancouver Coastal Health, are NOT legitimate. VCH does not use any third-party recruitment services to fill physician, nurses, 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 license numbers as this may result in identity theft.
Please note our domain name is “@vch.ca,” and NOT “@vchh.ca” or any other variation. Any emails coming from “@vchh.ca” or any other variation are fraudulent and should be reported immediately to email@example.com.
I am interested in a co-op, practicum placement, and/or volunteer services with VCH, who should I contact?
