BEWARE: Fraudulent recruitment scams posing as VCH
We have been made aware of fake recruitment programs that are using the name 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 are not legitimate. VCH does not use any third-party recruitment services. Please 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.
Please note our domain name is “@vch.ca,” and NOT “@vchh.ca” or any other variation. Any emails coming from “@vchh.ca” or other variations are fraudulent and should be reported immediately to email@example.com.
