What is the secondment program?

The secondment program is a formal arrangement between SafeCare BC, a peer facilitator, and the peer facilitator’s organization.

Under the secondment agreement, peer facilitators facilitate at least three workshops for SafeCare BC over a year. In return, SafeCare BC will pay the backfill replacement wages to the organization.

What are the benefits?


  • Get paid for your peer facilitator’s time. We’ll pay the backfill replacement wages each day the peer facilitator runs a workshop.
  • Get no-cost training. Secondments may take place at the peer facilitator’s organization. When that happens, some training seats are reserved for your staff, and we pay you backfill replacement wages for the peer facilitator’s time.


  • Expand your skill set. Becoming a peer facilitator is an excellent opportunity for personal and professional growth. You’ll increase your knowledge and gain valuable facilitation skills.
  • Make an even bigger impact. You’ll directly improve the health and safety of your colleagues in the sector.

To be eligible, you must:

  • Work for a SafeCare BC member or associate member organization

The eligible program streams are as follows:
