Work environment

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) hires skilled nurses from all backgrounds and areas of expertise. With the current health challenges facing our offender population, there is a need to recruit more nurses into our organization.

Nurses at CSC play an important role in providing quality care to offenders incarcerated in Canada's federal institutions, they work in accredited mental health facilities, as well as in Health Services Centres. In their daily work, nurses in CSC contribute to prevention, care, treatment, and support of acute and chronic physical and mental health conditions of offenders. Their interventions are extremely valued as they assist in maintaining the safety of Canadians by helping to improve offender health and reintegration into the community. CSC nurses provide a wide range of clinical services that can be found in a community setting, while specializing in services that reflect the needs of the offender population. These include infectious disease prevention and control, opiate substitution therapy programs, suicide prevention, enhanced discharge planning, and mental health interventions to support offenders with mental health disorders.

Intent of the process

CSC will review applications received weekly and contact applicants selected for further assessment based on the needs of the region or institutions. It is therefore important for candidates to indicate all the locations at which they are interested in working.
