Welcome to the CHEO Career Website

Pediatric health care is an exciting, challenging and rewarding field. If you are driven by a strong desire to help develop healthier, happier lives for children, come discover a supportive environment, a great team and a rewarding career.

As of October 1, 2016, CHEO has amalgamated with the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre (OCTC). In the past, we worked closely with OCTC staff as many of our patients with special needs are also clients of OCTC. This amalgamation means that we can now provide better, coordinated care to our shared patients and their families.

OCTC hosts a number of programs aimed at benefiting children and youth with special needs in our region. These programs rely on dedicated, hardworking staff to ensure they run smoothly and provide OCTC clients with the best possible experience. If you think you might be a good fit, we encourage you to review OCTC’s current job opportunities.
