The Sunshine Coast
A natural paradise blessed with mild winters, beautiful surroundings, and showcasing the best aspects of outdoor adventure, arts, and culture. Bordered by rugged mountains and blue ocean waters, situated on a peninsula (not an island) in the ancestral lands of the shíshálh (Sechelt) and Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) First Nations, this is the Sunshine Coast.  Whatever hobby or interest you might enjoy, we have it right here.  Hike the trails, get out in a kayak, try golfing, swimming, fishing, cross-country skiing, attend festivals, visit museums, go whale-watching, or any of the other recreational activities that are right at our doorstep.  Big city life is only a 40-minute ferry ride away.  A preferred tourist destination, a great place to live and play, now is the time to consider making this amazing place your ‘home’.

Compensation and Benefits
We have what is being called the very best compensation and benefit package that is out there. This position offers 6% vacation pay, and an additional 5% in lieu of statutory holiday pay after 30 days of employment. After 90 days of employment, casual employees are eligible for up to 5 paid sick days of previously scheduled work. Casual workers are also eligible to join the General Casual List for potential work opportunities elsewhere within the SCRD. And finally, all SCRD employees have access to the Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) upon hire, for free, confidential counselling services. This is a bargaining unit position with an appropriate hourly rate that will be received for the work as assigned:

  • Transit Driver (Conventional) — $36.08
  • HandyDART Driver — $36.08
  • Service Person (Transit Assistant) — $31.14

Please note: Casual work is short notice relief work, relieving employees who are on sick leave, leave of absence, vacation, or peak work periods for overload situations. There are no regularly scheduled hours nor any guarantee of hours.
