"We have worked closely with VIVRS staff in the delivery of the Employment Program of BC and have a great deal of respect for their caring and the quality of their work. We have also heard nothing but positive comments from clients who we have referred to VIVRS about the service and support they received there."
"I am writing this short testimonial to state the services and help that one of the staff of Vancouver Island Vocational and Rehabilitation Services has done for me in my quest to acquire knowledge to get retrained for a new job. He built up my confidence in our weekly meetings and has been very easy to get in touch with. He has done all the leg work for me in finding job experience opportunities. He's very easy to get along with and is easy to talk to about any problems I have dealing with my retraining. He's been my number one support source in my training."
