The usual hours of work are 8:45 am to 3:30 pm each weekday that school is in session with a 1 to 1.25 hour unpaid lunch. Flexibility to work until 4 pm and possibly up to 5:30 pm on any given day is an asset.

This contract is to cover a maternity leave which we anticipate will begin January 2018 and end on June 23, 2018, with the possibility that it will be extended until at least December 2018 and possibly until June 2019. The end date is variable due to the fact that an employee on maternity leave may legally elect to return sooner than they had originally anticipated as long as they give four weeks’ notice. 

The rate of pay is $17.24 per hour plus 4% vacation pay.  Currently, the Ministry is offering a $2/hour wage subsidy which would be paid out over and above this hourly rate for any hours worked in our licensed care programs.

We thank all candidates in advance; however we will contact only those selected for an interview. You must be legally able to work in Canada.
