Health Career Access Program (HCAP)
In September 2020, the Ministry of Health (MoH) announced the Health Career Access Program (HCAP) as a new pathway for future Health Care Assistants (HCAs) to receive training and education as an HCA while working as a Health Care Support Worker (HCSW). This initiative supports the increased need for additional staff in long-term care and assisted living sites.
We are pleased to announce that the Ministry of Health has provided LBHH&WR with an allocation of 22 Health Care Support Workers (HCSW) through the brand-new Health Careers Access Program (HCAP).
HCSW’s are supervised by registered nurses or other regulated health care professionals. They provide a variety of critical non-clinical, non-direct care supports to patients and residents:
- Participating as an integral member of a healthcare delivery team
- Establishing a caring relationship with clients, residents, and families
- Providing support and assistance with mealtime activities
- Providing support and assistance in carrying out activities
Qualified applicants are invited to apply for health care support worker positions with employers in their preferred region or community.
