If you are wondering how you could contribute to the collective effort to support local communities across Canada during these uncertain times, look no more.

Because the Canadian Red Cross (CRC) is looking for Public Health experts to stay alert and be ready to travel on short notice across Canada for periods of several weeks in order to intervene in different domains (Epidemic Control, Public Health, IPC, Contact tracing, vaccination etc…). As a Public Health Advisor you would provide technical advice on Epidemic Prevention and Control (EPC) through infection, prevention and control measures and protocols, in order to provide a safe healthcare environment.
