Your Opportunity:
Originally a railway town, Jasper's unpretentious small-town charm has a timeless appeal. Surrounded by towering mountains, crystalline lakes, and abundant wildlife, Jasper is located within a UNESCO World Heritage Site National Park. Amid the snow-capped Canadian Rockies, the park has glacier-fed lakes, forests and rivers. The Jasper SkyTram climbs to the summit of Whistlers Mountain, with views of downtown. The Jasper Yellowhead Museum and Archives presents exhibits on the fur trade, railway and early exploration of the park. Life in Jasper offers a host of outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, skiing, stargazing and horseback riding. We'll provide support for your transition, training and mentorship. This position may qualify for a $5,000 to $25,000 Recruitment Incentive. Please visit for more details.

As the Mental Health Therapist, you will be required to use a variety of treatment modalities (individual, family, and group) to persons experiencing significant mental health difficulties. Working both independently and as a member of a collaborative multidisciplinary team, you will provide evidence informed and best practices in crisis intervention, assessment, consultation, referral, case management and treatment.
