About Health Workforce Canada

Health Workforce Canada (HWC) is a new, independent organization created in 2023 by a Steering Committee with funding from Health Canada. HWC will bring together health care and health workforce experts to learn from each other and to strengthen health workforce data and planning, so that together they will help ensure health workers are there to provide the care people in Canada need.

In its start-up phase, HWC has identified a number of early priorities to help address key health human resources (HHR) issues in Canada. These priorities include pan-Canadian stakeholder engagement, the establishment of a set of HHR communities of practice, and the development of data dashboards and early HHR modelling and forecasting work.

Current Work Opportunities

HWC is currently seeking qualified candidates to join our dynamic team! These exciting opportunities will be of interest to individuals who are passionate about implementing health workforce systems-level change in a multi-disciplinary environment, and to those who want experience working in a start-up health organization that operates at the pan-Canadian level.

Work for HWC will be done virtually with the understanding that in-person team meetings will be held up to 4 times per year, for a maximum of 3 consecutive days. Some travel will be required to attend the in-person team meetings and some travel may be required to meet with key stakeholders from time to time.

Successful candidates will join HWC on a secondment basis from their current employer for a period of up to two years, with the possibility of extension with the agreement of the parties.
