The attraction of working for Sunshine ...

" It's a home away from home."


"It's a homey, intriguing, challenging environment with a warm open friendly atmosphere"




Do you love to work with people? Have a caring heart? Are energetic? Can be a good role model with a good work ethic? If this sounds like you then you should consider joining our team as a Care Provider. Here are a few details on how to come on board:

Both the Department of Health (DoH) and Community Services (DCS) have mandated that all of our staff be trained in the Core Competencies. Homes under the Health jurisdiction are required to have 5 of the 7 courses and homes under DCS are required to have all 7 courses. Even though each department has different requirements, all of our staff is required to take the full 7 courses in order to be employed by us.

Staff and Administrators

The 7 core Competencies are:

1. Medication Awareness

2. Fire and Life Safety

3. Crisis Prevention and Intervention (CPI)

4. Individualized Planning

5. Behavioural Supports

6. Standard First Aid/CPR

7. Health and Personal Care

We recognize that not everyone is able to acquire these courses in the community so you can be considered for employment without having all of these in place. Sunshine will provide the necessary courses but staff must agree to complete them when they become available.

Besides the Core Competencies, you must have grade 12 or equivalent and experience in the field of human services.
