Horrible place to work. Staff were treated like garbage. I was yelled at, made to feel like an idiot and if the clients complained to management about anything at all, staff were immediately accused of being in the wrong without any chance to explain their side.

If you are not part of the clique, you will not advance in the company. Unfair treatment and favoritism is very prominent. They wouldn't think twice about throwing you under the bus if it's a benefit for them
Pros
Have yet to discover
Cons
Negative moral and favoritism.

I worked there 3 years. I had more experience than most staff who worked there. They did not advance the Canadian qualified staff. They would promote staff not qualified for team lead or management positions. They are funded by the government so if you want to advance in a company you won't unless you are not canadian.horroble place to work
Staff get bullied and they never do anything about it.
Pros
Pay is 16 hr
Cons
They make you work if they have noone to cover a shift

It's a good starting point to gain experience and develop your mentorship skills in the mental health field. Though sometimes the job could be demanding due to the style of management. A top-down management approach whereby the decisions are solely made from the upper echelon and forced down on lower ranks. It is of my opinion that the front line staff is the most important rank because they have a day to day knowledge of what transpires with the participants through their commitments of mentorship and building of relationships. Nevertheless, the company has a great opportunity for employees to climb up the ladder.

A typical day at work would include caring for residents and teaching clients everyday life skills, administering medications, ensuring safety of clients. Ive learned patience and time management.
The hardest part of the job would be observing incidents which involved drug overdose suicide attempts. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to connect with clients and learn about their backgrounds.
Pros
Free movie admission
Cons
poor management

FASD Life's Journey has very good aboriginal cultural programming. There are a lot of very good staff working in the organization. There continues to be better and better communication between management and front line staff. Some of the positions deal with very difficult situations.They are not paid better than the ones that have a more straight forward client to work with.
Pros
Management is taking front line staff's point of view more serious.
Cons
Management runs their office staff until they're burnt out.
