Position Description:

CAMH’s Provincial System Support Program (PSSP) works with partners across Ontario to support the province’s 10-year Comprehensive Mental Health and Addictions Strategy and create sustainable, system-level change. With offices in Toronto and across the province, PSSP is on the ground, collaborating with stakeholders to build a better system through our work in implementation, knowledge exchange, evaluation, information management, health equity and priority population engagement.

Reporting to the Regional Manager, the Regional Equity and Engagement Lead is a member of a Regional Implementation Team. The Lead will also be a part of the PSSP provincial team dedicated to contributing to system-level capacity building efforts in health equity and engagement in order to continue to improve the accessibility and client / family-centeredness of the mental health and addictions system. As a member of CAMH’s Provincial System Support Program (PSSP) the Regional Equity and Engagement Lead will contribute leadership to advancing the inclusion of equity, engagement and health promotion into the mental health and addiction system.

In your role, you will provide content expertise and coordination with respect to equity and engagement across the East Region’s work and in the Ottawa/Champlain areas specifically. This will involve integrating health equity principles and practices (including evidence-based tools and processes) in the team’s system change work. It will also involve planning and coordinating the meaningful engagement of persons with lived experience and family members, as well as minority, marginalized and vulnerable populations. This may include taking the lead on particular priority areas or partnerships. There will be opportunities to provide system improvement support in engaging First Nations, Inuit, Métis and Francophone priority communities and community members with lived experience with mental health and addictions. There will be a focus on the engagement of Francophone partners and populations, including some work at the program and provincial level with respect to this priority. You will support a healthy workplace that embraces diversity, encourages teamwork and complies with all applicable and regulatory requirements. This position is located in Ottawa and requires regular travel within Eastern Ontario as well as occasional travel to Toronto.
