Care Access Centres (CCACs) of Ontario as their single
point of access for community health services. A new
initiative to the CCACs, the Mental Health & Addiction
Nurses in District School Boards Program is an
important component of Ontario's plan to improve
services and support for children and youth with mental
health and addictions needs. This has created unique
and exciting full-time opportunities for outcome-oriented
Registered Nurses with direct clinical experience in
providing mental health and/or addictions services for
children and youth.

timely manner. We are looking for RNs with current CNO registration, knowledge
of the mental health and addictions service system for children and youth,
advanced assessment and diagnostic reasoning skills, and a solid grasp of
health care legislation. A valid driver's licence and access to a vehicle are
