Frequently Asked Questions

Does Nordik offer nursing mandates in Northern Ontario or Manitoba?

Yes, Nordik works with Indigenous Services Canada to meet the nursing needs of First Nations communities in Northern Ontario or Manitoba. We also have openings in Quebec, Alberta and Nunavut.

Are some communities accessible by car or located closer to major urban centers?

Yes, some mandates are available in communities within a 4-hour drive of Toronto or Winnipeg. They are accessible by car, provided you are careful about winter conditions.

I used to work with another company for equivalent mandates in the Great North. Can I apply at Nordik?

Of course! Anytime you are ready for a new adventure, you are welcome to apply. Together, we will discuss your qualifications to make sure they are still valid for application. You’ll love our human approach!

I have expanded role training. Is this training an asset for mandates with Indigenous Services Canada?

Expanded role training is not a prerequisite, but it will certainly be helpful on the job. We can make a special note of it for your application.

I do not have a license in Ontario or Manitoba. Is my license from another province sufficient to apply?

You will need to apply for a license equivalency from the Province of Ontario or Manitoba. We can help you do this; it’s simpler than it sounds!

How long do mandates last?

Missions generally last from 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the community’s remoteness.
