Our Team

Working Here

Relaxed. Comfy. Sounds like your favourite pair of jeans—not another day at work. Some staff say it’s like hanging out with family—complete with warm interactions, fun celebrations, and lots of laughter.

Even though things are informal around here, there’s a creative culture that’s freeing and professional enthusiasm that’s contagious. Because the work is diverse and always changing, no one is ever bored. Everyone is open about sharing their knowledge, skills and talent—pulling together to deliver top-notch work.

Open School BC is a cost recovery unit within the BC Ministry of Education and Child Care.

Educational Applications

AKA EdApps. We’re an agile, problem-solving team that provides both customer support and technical expertise. We’re the first point of contact for users who need assistance with their online training, and we administer the technical backend of our Managed Moodle Hosting Service.

We strive to provide highly responsive support to clients and reliable application development.
