Entry Level, Early Career

Children’s Treatment Network (CTN) builds brighter futures together for over 25,000 children and youth with disabilities and other developmental needs. Some of our clients have lifelong, complex disabilities and use equipment such as wheelchairs to move around, while others need therapy to help them speak clearly.

Funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, CTN provides an average of 81,000 service visits each year, which are delivered through public and private partner organizations in the health, education and community/social service sectors. We work across sectors to support families where they need it most – in home, school and community settings. Collectively, we provide intake, service navigation and coordinated service planning; assessment and diagnostic services; specialized clinical and rehabilitation services such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech language therapy; a family mentor program and inclusive events for children and families.

Families are at the heart of our decisions and embedded in our work through consultation, involvement, partnerships and shared leadership. They are involved in our governance, internal operations as employees, at the system level through family advisory committee and volunteer positions and as members of their child’s clinical team.

Do you pride yourself on providing a high level of administrative support, building strong relationships and leveraging technology to work efficiently?
