Allied Health professionals

The CBHSSJB offers unique working conditions to allied health professionals who are open to the challenge of the north.  You must be dynamic, self-sufficient, team-spirited and open to the Cree culture and reality. Allied health professionals work within the Community Miyupimaatisiiun Center (CMC), which is similar to a CSSS elsewhere in Quebec.  There is a CMC in each of the 9 communities of Eeyou Istchee, offering a modern work place and tools.

The CBHSSJB is actively recruiting Allied Health professionals, to support the following services:

Audiology is concerned with hearing and hearing loss, and audiologists can assess hearing, address hearing loss, and prevent related hearing damage

Nutrition counselling can take place in an individual session or in a group/workshop setting (such as a cooking class).  

Occupational therapy helps people to improve their ability to perform normal activities.

Physiotherapy helps people who have physical disabilities or problems to address these issues.

Psycho-educational services assist people who are struggling with behavioural adjustment problems in various aspects of their lives.
