What does the Centre offer employees?

As a provincial program at CHEO, we offer competitive compensation and benefit packages. A core benefit of this is being part of the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP) — one of Canada's largest defined benefit pension plans — and CHEO's generous pension contributions.

We are a learning organization, keen on professional development. We have also cultivated a positive, enjoyable working environment. We value work-life balance and we take the time to celebrate individual and collective efforts as well as key milestones and achievements.
