Position: Health Equity Analyst, Analytics
If you are highly motivated, passionate about health data and have a desire to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Canada especially those communities and populations who are underserved, you will want to join the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (the Partnership). The Partnership stewards the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control (CSCC), driving measurable change for all people in Canada affected by cancer. Its mission supports a future where fewer people get cancer, more people survive cancer and those living with the disease have a better quality of life. Our vision is to achieve equitable access to high quality care for all Canadians, which requires Partnership staff to be well equipped to support our partners in reaching this goal.
The Partnership is looking for a Health Equity Analyst, a key member of the Analytics team, to take a lead role in the planning, analysis and reporting of data to inform system quality improvement initiatives and monitor the Partnership’s organizational performance, ensuring that the content reflects cultural competence and addresses the needs of First Nations, Inuit and Métis and underserved populations across Canada. This work would include exploring novel data linkages to understand disparities, development of new equity-focused indicators and supporting internal and external partners to build capacity for equity measurement.
This position is part of the Cancer Systems, Performance and Innovation Division headed by the Vice President. This Division is responsible for enabling and contributing to the delivery of the Strategic Priorities in the Partnership’s mandate, with a focus on the Partnership’s Programs and the development of effective and strategically salient initiatives through effective working relationships with leaders in policy, clinical, scientific, administrative and other domains. To deliver on this mandate, the Division encompasses three functional units: Regional Integration, Research and Innovation, and Performance. The Division works in close collaboration with the other divisions to develop, deliver and report ongoing progress on progress towards the goals of the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control.
The Partnership values an agile, inclusive culture that prioritizes diversity of thought and experience by inviting constructive and challenging opinions. The Partnership also places a premium on ensuring it reflects the demographic diversity of Canadians, at all levels of the organization.
