Employment Opportunity

The Employee Assistance Services (EAS) at Health Canada offers an EAP that provides short-term solution-focused counselling services to the majority of federal government department employees and their eligible family members.

EAS is currently looking to recruit counsellors of various backgrounds and experiences.

• Have a Master’s degree or equivalent in social science such as Social work, Psychology or Counselling

• Have a minimum of five (5) years of counselling experience

• Have minimum liability insurance $2,000,000 per claim
