We work together.

Compassion, understanding, adaptability and commitment. These are the gifts of the people who work on the front lines at the Alex. Our dedicated multi-disciplinary team of almost 400 staff includes medical staff, social workers, mental health specialists, peer supporters, educators, community facilitators, and an outstanding support team. As a team we know it takes the combination of our unique skills and expertise to make a difference.

We encourage you to see our current career opportunities!

We walk together.

Our volunteers are vital to our work in the community. They are the friendly faces who can do the little extras, enhancing the quality of services that we offer.

Our volunteer needs are as unique as our volunteers! Because of this, we may not have an immediate match for you based on skills or availability, however, we encourage you to apply online and we will contact you when something comes available.

Your education journey

The Alex works with accredited institutions to provide students in a variety of fields including social work, nursing, child & youth care studies, medical office administration, and other areas related to the organization’s work.

We also benefit tremendously from having students within our organization who offer a fresh perspective on the great work we do.

**Please note: at this time, we cannot accommodate a practicum where a Registered Psychologist or a Masters in Social Work is required to supervise/precept**

“Seeing how much support and understanding there is at The Alex makes me forget that I am volunteering to help change lives because it’s changing mine every day that I am here”
