Project Coordinator (Contract)

The Sea to Sky Community Action Team (CAT) project coordinator will support the CAT to achieve their strategic priorities by providing leadership, coordination and administrative services.

About the Sea to Sky Community Action Team:

On December 1, 2017, the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions launched an Overdose Emergency Response Centre (OERC). The goal of the OERC is to spearhead urgent action at the community level to prevent further deaths and to support people at risk of overdose to access supports, treatment, and recovery services where appropriate. CATs act as a critical component of the provincial overdose emergency response by engaging stakeholders to monitor the overdose emergency in local settings and by escalating any issues or barriers to the OERC and Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions.

The purpose of the Sea to Sky CAT is to promote collaboration, discussion and decision-making related to the overdose response within the Sea to Sky region. The CAT will coordinate local strategies in order to improve the overdose emergency response to better meet the needs of those most at risk. The Sea to Sky CAT is looking for an experienced project coordinator to assist with its on-going coordination needs, including organizing key working groups to execute the CAT’s priority actions.
