Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) has an interesting and unique mandate by playing a role in supporting services and programs in communities such as health, education, economic development, housing, community infrastructure and social support. In the context of reconciliation, ISC supports Aboriginal peoples (First Nations, Inuit and Métis) in their efforts to improve social well-being and economic prosperity to the benefit of all Canadians.
In the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB) of Indigenous Services Canada, we strive to provide access to quality health services, improve health outcomes, and support greater control of the health system by First Nations and Inuit.
By joining our team, you will have opportunity to provide direct support to health services and community based programming. You will build and support strong working relationships with First Nations and Inuit communities, families, and individuals, with a focus on improving health outcomes and reducing health risks.
In addition to your Indigenous Services Canada colleagues, your diverse team will consist of other federal departments, provincial partners, and members of the First Nations and Inuit communities FNIHB supports.
Intent of the process
Please be advised this process will be used to staff positions in the new department of Indigenous Services Canada. The creation of the department of Indigenous Services Canada is an important development in our renewed relationship with Indigenous peoples. These structural changes will allow our government to work more effectively with Indigenous partners to provide services that improve people’s day-to-day quality of life.
A pool of qualified candidates will be established and may be used to staff similar term and/or permanent positions, actings, assignments/secondments, or deployments in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
