Whoa. That's shitty pay. I am contacting them tomorrow to see if they will hire my clients. Thanks!


TRIBE Member
I think the pay comes with the territory... they are a very progressive organization - definitely work the experience. Oh and I heard they just got a boost in funding so might offer future opportunities.


TRIBE Member
no, that's got to be a mistake. A position like that would make about $18/hr. Looks like they forgot the '1'.
Heck, here at the Queen West Health Centre we pay our peer workers $10.40/hr...
