Contract correspondance has been clear and concise.
Mental Health First Aid Training Instructor (Current Employee) –  Various5 July 2017
I work under contract and provide services as required. On average I provide around 10 courses per year, both locally and across Canada. All contacts have been easy to coordinate with, and payments have always been received in a timely fashion.

Disappointing corporate culture
Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON10 May 2017
Although the MHCC spends a lot of time talking about mental health in the workplace, the number of staff who took stress leave during my time there was shocking. From inefficiency of managers to disengaged, jet-setting executives, the MHCC is in dire need of a complete overhaul.
Pros
Location is convenient. Interesting field of work.
Cons
Stressful environment.
