Productive and fun workplace

I had the chance to cook with a fully loaded kitchen, including 2 indoor grills, and a convection oven. Meeting the Parkdale community was a great experience.

Passionate management

Fair and passionate management. The executive director is a powerhouse, ready to advocate for both clients and staff. I’ve never had a work place that more clearly practices what they breach, and ground their work in anti oppressive practices.


Good management, flexible hours, worker autonomy


High needs community, risk of burnout

Great place to work if you like petty managers, favoritism and unjust agency practices

Working in harm reduction at PQWCHC was one of the worst things that ever happened to me. The CHC is very cliquey and the incompetent management consistently engage in favoritism. Peer workers and staff who try to engage critically with any agency policies are treated as disposable. There's a reason that they constantly have job postings up and can't retain staff despite paying better than other harm reduction services in Toronto. I would not go back for any amount of money and the day I quit was one of the happiest days I've had in recent memory.

Community support

As a placement student, i got to be apart of programs and got to interact with clients. The staff was nice and friendly, and they helped me feel apart of everything.

Dynamic team environment

A typical day starts with a team meeting where we review current and upcoming events relative to the clinical team. The management is helpful and very supportive to staff. The team is supportive and work environment is good.

no supervision or recognition

In the several years that I worked here, I did not receive any performance reviews. There were many issues at meetings that could have been addressed in a single email. No clear direction or supervision.
