Because of the nature of our services, Tikinagan has to make sure that the children and families we serve are safe and that the staff we hire don’t pose any risks to clients. One of the measures we take is ensuring new staff provide a criminal background check.
All successful applicants will require an application for, or a current, Criminal Record Check (CRC). A Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) for those positions working with children will also be required. As such, it is recommended that applicants apply for a CRC & VSC as soon as possible.

However, we welcome applicants to contact HR if they wish to follow up on an application or inquire about other opportunities at Tikinagan.
