Gig Worker Engagement



Take the questionnaire

Take the gig workers questionnaire until 4:00 PM on January 6, 2023:

Engagement summary

Gig work is an income-earning activity outside of standard employer-employee relationships. B.C. is reviewing the conditions gig workers face in their job to ensure appropriate standards are in place. Government may propose employment standards amendments for gig workers and ensure these employees are not incorrectly classified as independent contractors.

A series of regional in-person roundtables will be scheduled to hear directly from gig workers about their jobs, their working conditions, and the unique challenges they face.

The roundtables will focus on app-based gig workers and are part of a province-wide strategy for workers whose jobs could be described as precarious.

News Release: Monday, November 14, 2022 https://news.gov.bc.ca/27777

Ways to participate

App-based ride-hailing and delivery workers may attend a roundtable in their community to provide input about:

  • The work they do
  • Their working conditions
  • The challenges they face
  • How employment standards could address their challenges

Government wants to hear from those who use this as either primary or supplementary income. Translation services will be provided where possible.

The sessions will be scheduled in November 2022 within communities throughout the province.
