The North East Service Area in La Loche requires a Child Protection Worker to provide services under the Authority of The Child and Family Services Act and The Adoption Act.

You will provide a range of services designed to provide protective, preventative and support services to children and their families using The Family Centered Case Management Model of practice.

In this position, you will be responsible for investigating allegations of neglect, physical or sexual abuse, and assessing family functioning, determining risk factors to the children’s safety, implementing intervention plans and providing support services to the family, as required.

When necessary, you will initiate Family Court proceedings and work through this process with the family. In cases where the children are admitted to the care of the Ministry, you will manage their needs, including placement in foster and alternate resources, assessment and treatment planning to ensure that individual health, social psychological and education needs are met and preparation to return home.

Children placed in care on a long-term basis will necessitate long-term care and planning. This process often includes working in co-operation with First Nation Child and Family Service agencies. You will be required to travel, work flexible hours in the evening and on weekends, and transport children (and parents) in service delivery.

The successful candidate will be required to work flexible hours and travel.

To qualify for this position you will possess a Bachelor of Social Work, Bachelor of Indigenous Social Work, or an equivalent Bachelor of Social Work degree from an accredited university, as approved by the SASW or CASW/CASWE.
