The Cree Board of Health had a special spotlight as the only employer to participate in a local 2024 Career/Job Fair held on January 31 at James Bay Eeyou, High School in Chisasibi.
The event, which gathered more than 350 people, including community members, adults, students and professionals, was designed to inform students and the public about all the possible jobs and career paths they can consider if they choose to work with the Cree Board of Health.
Attendees also learned about educational opportunities available now and in the future. Dr. Darlene Kitty, a family physician, encouraged attendees to take advantage of opportunities to expand their knowledge: "If I hadn't been determined to follow my dreams, I wouldn't be a doctor today, and I encourage you all to do the same," she said.
Mark Wadden, Deputy Chief of the Cree Nation of Chisasibi, and Jeannie Pelletier, Regional Proximity Director - Chisasibi Pole, encouraged the students to follow their dreams and think about all the great opportunities the Cree Board of Health has to offer, and most importantly, to never let go of their dreams.
While the local career fair has closed, the Cree Nation of Chisasibi is already planning for the next fair in February, and the Cree School Board will be the selected employer to be represented.
The Career Fair was an initiative of the Cree Nation of Chisasibi (CNC), organized in partnership with Youth Development and the Cree Board of Health.
