Odds and Ends

This is a contract position with the possibility of annual renewal.

Two positions are available:

One full time position. Days, evenings, and/or weekends. (Ideally this counsellor would have some flexibility to provide a range of available times until his/her caseload fills up.)

One part time position: Evenings (after 5pm) and/or weekends (any time). Must be available a minimum 8 hours/week.

Please be advised that only short listed applicants will be contacted.
