Frequently Asked Questions

Job Search

How often are new jobs posted?
New jobs are posted as they become available, rather than on a schedule.

How can I search jobs efficiently?
There are a few ways you can do a job search that is limited to what interests you:

1. If you know the type of job you are looking for or the location at which you wish to work
On the home page of our careers website, you can search by Keyword – e.g. Nurse – or choose the site you wish to work at by selecting it in the Location dropdown menu. This search will show you all open job postings that contain the keyword in the posting or are available at your chosen location.

2. If you would like to view jobs to see where you skills could be best applied
On the home page of our careers website, you can narrow down your search to three job categories – Clinical, Clinical Support and Non-Clinical. By doing this, you can view and compare jobs that are similar in how they contribute to health care delivery.

3. If you would like to see all available jobs, or search by job title, status (full time, part time or casual), location or posting date
On the home page of our careers website, click on the Search Jobs button. This will show you all jobs currently available. On this page, you can use the filters to search by job title, facility, job status or posting date.

Can I set up job alerts?
Yes, you can. Sign in to your personal online profile, then under the ‘My Job Agents’ heading, set up one or more agent (job) searches. You can add or delete job search agents at any time. If you don’t already have an online profile, click here to get started.

What is a job agent?
A job agent is a job alert. If you add job agents, you will receive an email notification when there is one or more job posting that matches the keyword and/or location criteria you set for your agent searches.

For example, you could create a job agent based on the words “Health Care Aid”, “Churchill, Manitoba”. You could set the frequency of your agent as 7 days. Based on this, you would be sent an email containing a link to any job postings for Health Care Aids at the Churchill Health Centre. At most, you would receive this type of email once a week.

What facilities and programs post jobs on this website?
The website represents the facilities and programs that are part of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA), including the Churchill Health Centre located in northern Manitoba. As well, some additional facilities within the Winnipeg Health Region choose to post jobs on this website.

All physician positions are posted on Medical Staff section of the WRHA website.

Information on volunteer opportunities is available on the Volunteer section of the WRHA website.

Posting Information

Why do I need security checks?
We require every person who works with us to provide an acceptable criminal records check with vulnerable sector search, adult abuse registry check and a child abuse registry check. This policy helps ensure the people we hire are suitable to work in health care environments. This is an important part of protecting the interests of our patients, clients and residents and our health care system.

If you are offered a position, you will be provided information on this requirement including where these services are available.

What does FTE mean?
FTE is short for Full Time Equivalency. This defines the position as a percentage of a full-time job. A full-time position is 1.00 FTE. A 0.50 FTE position would work 50% of the hours of a 1.00 FTE, a 0.25 FTE would work 25% of the hours of a 1.00 FTE etc.

What are the health care regulations or licensing in Manitoba?
If you are a health-care professional wanting to work in our province, you need to be licensed or registered as required by the Manitoba regulatory college for your profession. For information specific to your discipline, see its governing body’s website.


How do I apply for a job?
We recommend that you create your online candidate profile ahead of time. That way, when you see a job posting that interests you, you can simply click ‘Apply Now’ and complete the application process. You must be logged in to your personal profile to complete an application. If you don’t already have a candidate profile, you will be prompted to create one.

What is a candidate profile?
A candidate profile provides information about you, including your work and educational history. Your profile can also contain attached documents, such as your resume. This information becomes part of any application you submit to the Winnipeg Health Region, now and in the future. You can update this profile at any time.

Is it necessary to include a cover letter?
A cover letter is optional. However, it is a helpful addition to your application. We encourage you to include a cover letter that highlights your suitability for the position and supports your resume for each job application.

Is it necessary to attach a resume?
Although it’s not necessary to attach a resume to submit an application, it is a good idea. Your online candidate profile contains some basic information about your work history and education. However, your resume is your opportunity to tell us more and help us make a better decision about your application.

If you choose to attach your resume, we suggest that you review the information in your online candidate profile. Our website automatically pulls information from your resume and places it in your profile. However, it may not show information the way you intended. You can make any necessary changes by entering them directly into your candidate profile.

How do I submit ‘My Attachments’ as part of my application?
Any document you have in the ’My Attachments’ section is automatically visible to the hiring manager.

Can I submit an application after the deadline?
Late applications will not be considered. If you are interested in a position, be sure to apply before the closing date and time.

Can I apply for more than one job using the same application?
No, you must apply to each job posting separately.

Can I submit a general application without applying for a specific job?
No, we only accept resumes for current open job postings.

Can I drop off or mail in my resume?
No, we only accept resumes submitted through our online process.

How will I know that my application has been received?
The online program will guide you through the steps of your application. You will receive an email notification confirming that your application has been submitted successfully. At this point, you can be assured that your application and any attachments (e.g. resume, cover letter) have been received and will be reviewed in the near future.

How do I find out the status of my application?
You will receive an email notification to let you know that your application has been received. If you are shortlisted for the position, you will receive an email or phone call to arrange an interview. Once a candidate has accepted a job offer for the position, all applicants will be notified by email that the competition has closed and encouraged to consider future postings.

You can also check the status of your application by logging in to your candidate profile, then clicking on the View Profile link. Look for information under the Jobs Applied heading.

How can I withdraw my application?
Log in to your candidate profile, click on the View Profile link and select 'Jobs Applied'. Click on the application you wish to cancel. This will open a new screen. Click on the Withdraw Application button on the bottom right.
