Welcome to the Department of Health and Social Services (HSS) Career Site.

Challenging environments, welcoming communities and expanded opportunities are waiting for you to pursue your passion for healthcare or social services with the Government of the Northwest Territories. We value our greatest asset; our people.  We’re committed to investing in our people by offering various programs to recruit and retain health and social services professionals . To ensure we are making the best investments to effectively recruit and retain, HSS is developing a new human resources strategic plan that targets current and future human resource needs across the health and social services system. 

We are excited to offer new targeted programs in April 2015 for new graduates beginning their professional career in health or social services and for those who are already providing a valuable contribution to our organization.  If you are a new graduate or experienced health or social services professional looking for an exciting and rewarding career opportunity, join us as we provide the best health and best care for a better future for people in the Northwest Territories.

HSS Bursary Program

We are currently transitioning to a new HSS human resources strategic plan in April 2015.  As part of this transition, HSS is no longer offering the HSS Bursary Program, and will not accept any further applications.  We remain committed to students already participating in an HSS Bursary Program to support their academic pursuit in a health and social services profession.  If you are currently receiving an HSS Bursary, this program change will not affect you.  HSS will continue to administer the HSS Bursary Program for current participants until all bursaries are fully received. 

For general inquiries, please contact the Recruitment Program Officer at  (867) 873-7120 or 1-888-591-7884.
