The agency is looking for someone innovative, proactive and self-motivated, who has a passion for “researching and testing new trends.”
The applicant will need to be bilingual, and will ideally have experience in a relevant field, such as marketing, social media, management, communications or similar.

There are different roles available, depending on the applicant's working background.
Entry-level candidates need little to no experience in the field to apply, while senior-level applicants will need up to 12 years of experience.
Whether you’re at the top or the bottom of the career ladder, Health Canada is paying big bucks.

They’re also offering annual increases, career advancement opportunities, a generous pension scheme, flexible work schedules and increased vacation days every few years.
It’s worth noting that these roles may require you to work overtime on short notice, including weekends and evenings. That said, your flexibility is rewarded by the generous salary!
While preference will be given to Canadian citizens, “persons residing in Canada” with a valid work permit are also eligible to apply.
