Thinking About a Career in Healthcare?

Interested in a career with endless employment opportunities and free tuition for training? Due to the increasing number of aging Canadians, Continuing Care Assistants  (CCAs) are in high demand in Nova Scotia. The need for CCAs is only expected to rise and create more career opportunities in the future. Being a CCA is fulling work and with a strong employment outlook working as a CCA has never been more advantageous!

Right now, the Nova Scotia government is providing funding to select healthcare facilities to train individuals who see themselves working in this meaningful and important role in Healthcare. Training is delivered by Eastern College in partnership with the chosen long-term care facilities.
