Careers Empowering Communities

Tikinagan Child and Family Services is an Indigenous agency serving Nishnawbe Aski Nation First Nations in the area north of Sioux Lookout. It was created by the Chiefs of this area to provide child protection services that are sensitive to the unique needs of Indigenous children and families, First Nations culture and traditions, and the concept of the extended family.

We value our employees’ education, skills and most importantly their cultural awareness and respect for our service model, Mamow Obiki-ahwahsoowin. Employment opportunities at Tikinagan are vast. There are opportunities to work directly with children and families, in what we call frontline work, or to work “behind the scenes” in areas such as management, administrative support, information technology, data entry, finance or human resources. Our opportunities are full-time or casual and often are great stepping stones to a very fulfilling career.
