Recognized as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2017)

Here are some of the reasons why CAMH / Centre for Addiction and Mental Health was selected as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2017):

  • As part of the organization's inclusive recruitment practices, CAMH provides bias-free interview training for recruiters and managers and ensures that prospective candidates receive the appropriate accommodation if needed -- additionally, CAMH includes diversity-specific questions as part of the interview process and incorporates mandatory diversity training into its orientation and onboarding processes
  • CAMH manages "Employment Works!", a unique program to help individuals with mental health or addiction access meaningful employment through skills development such as resume writing, cover letters, referrals and other educational resources -- Accenture recently joined "Employment Works" as a partner and provides access to Accenture-facilitated employment workshops, resume building exercises and videotaped mock interviews
  • CAMH supports the "Out of This World Cafe" at three of its locations -- originally a vocational rehabilitation program managed by CAMH, the cafes are now operated by Working for Change and provide employment opportunities for the psychiatric consumer/survivor community
