Good place to work, supportive management, fair pay, pension benefits and vacation time . Several treatment modalities are used throughout the agency and treatment settings.

Learning/Training/Development is on going
Kinark is a very complex organization so there is a lot to learn and it has provided really excellent experience for me. The client groups are varied and the work is challenging but attainable.

Great place to work and grow
Kinark is a great place to work and grow as a clinician. Work-life balance is great and recent management turn over has led to a positive change in Kinark culture.

Great learning opportunity
Kinark child and family services was my first CYW job. I’ve learnt lots and have gained a lot of experience. although there are difficult moments with the high need clients, it’s so rewarding. Although, I think they need to focus more on accepting clients they are qualified to help. i find a lot of the time they accept clients with more than just mental health. This makes it difficult for the CYW’s as it makes us feel like glorified babysitters managing challenging behaviours rather than a child and youth worker.

A Terrible Place to Work
The manualized and cookiecutter treatment modalities do not fit for the population served. Parent involvement is a must when working with young children. Clients sit on the waitlist for 2 - 3 years, and when they are assigned a therapist, the therapists burn out trying to motivate and commit parents who have a variety of barriers to treatment. When solutions are proposed to commit parents at the front door, upper management will not listen to ideas of frontline workers. Workplace culture is very cliquey and gossipy. Mental health of employees is not supported, encouraged, prioritized, or reflected in benefits. Do not work here if you want to make a positive difference in the world. The staff turnover rate is all you need to know to run far and fast.
