Difficult to Fill Vacancy Survey

The Difficult to Fill Vacancy Survey (DTFVS) is requested of all health employers in British Columbia who are HEABC members. The purpose of the system is to gather data on all difficult to fill vacancies in the health system. A difficult to fill vacancy is a job that remains unfilled after three months of active recruitment.  

The Ministry of Health has identified the information which will be gathered as a high priority. The information contained in DTFVS is essential to developing a co-ordinated approach among educators, health care administrators, provincial government representatives, and employer associations to health human resource (HHR) planning, for identifying emerging HHR planning issues, and providing advice to government and others. Therefore, it is critical that members report regularly and accurately.

Individual employer and site information will be kept confidential but data will be combined at provincial and geographic levels for needs analysis purposes.
