full time  •  $35.53 - $46.65 per hour, depending on experience.

About Us:

Atira Women's Resource Society, an award-winning nonprofit organization known for its inclusionary hiring practices and where a job is more than a pay cheque. We offer the opportunity to work alongside a remarkable group of women working to make the world a more just place, one woman, one child, one home, one job at a time.


About the Job:
In response to the Fall 2020 public health order issued under the Health Professions Act, which authorizes registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses to prescribe pharmaceutical alternatives to street drugs, Atira is hiring a Registered Nurse, Registered Psychiatric Nurse or Nurse Practitioner to support people to separate from the poisoned drug supply and to provide information about opportunities for ongoing care, treatment and support. Part of this position is funded by My Safe Society and requires the successful applicant to work on site with the Overdose Prevention Society and at Luugat, one of Atira Property management’s supportive housing sites, both of which currently have a My Safe Society vending machine. The Nurse will report to the Manager, Strategic Health Initiatives.

You are a team player who strives for excellence but loves to have a good laugh, is able to think fast, be critical, and make sound decisions without agonizing, all while working in an incredibly dynamic and fast-paced environment.
