Staff are not supported by management. Staff often pitted against each other. Management intimidates staff with loss of hours or employment. When I was hired the Exec. Director at that time was very supportive of staff and clubhouse members. That changed when she left and a new ED was hired in 2011. Since then everything changed and not in a positive way!
Good wage and benefits (union)
Staff are not supported by management
They overwork you and expect you to go way above and beyond. Since this program is still in its infancy, there is a lot of program development yet to be done. But those who are supposed to be responsible for program development do not take proper responsibility for their tasks and put it on coaches and other staff members.It is quite messy, disorganized, and coaches are made to suffer for it. For minimal pay.It gets hard to want to do a good job when in this exhausting environment. There are a lot of politics and nobody seems happy anymore.Used to be a fun place to work, but now the wrong leaders have come in and I would not recommend it anymore.Workplace culture is pretty bad. There are a few good people who care, but most are burnt out and unfair.
Bad workplace culture, low pay, unorganized, high workload expectations

Unsupportive management. No HR. Workplace culture is dishonest, lacks confidentiality, unprofessional, gossipy, and has declined tremendously. The work environment is not client-focused or employee supported, it is growth and funding hungry.
supporting members and residents, benefits, wage
no support for staff, bullying, targeting
Amazing place to work for and very rewarding. The management has a good way to approach employees and to help with any questions. The work is rewarding and the pay I'd decent. iI did my year placement with them and loved it. I got to learn so much and connect with clients to help them empower themselves. I recommend working here.
Great work experience
Thunder Bay branch is the most toxic environment I have ever encountered. Management is terrible and senior administration (3 people) are the toxic creators. HR is a nightmare, and with the director you have the perfect bully team. New CEO is a follower. They are just waiting to take people out. You will be harassed on multiple levels by employees and management. This place is not worth your time, energy or passion. Go somewhere else where you can be a whole person without the fear and stress that will result in counselling sessions that you will be in, in order to get rid of the negative energy that will infiltrate you. The poor clients of this place are NOT getting what they deserve. RUN!
Stress, anxiety, emotional toll on your soul
Most relaxed place I have ever worked! Genuine people who absolutely care about your mental health and well being! I have the ability to learn and grow each shift I work there! Always bettering my self and my life
Work hours, work environment, coworkers
Working with homeless and Drug addicts could be a lot scaring at times, and also fun-filled. We housing independent homeless and drug addicts and we make sure they are saved to live together under one roof without panic or fear. We provided assistance to the overdose and reminded those who needed to take medication when necessary.
10 hours at night
The management is racist. In times of cut backs, minorities are targeted, especially among non-union staff. If you are a minority, your job may be at risk
Salary and benefits are great
Stressful job and possible discrimination
Great team to work with and environment was excellent, team worked collaboratively. This is the only place I’ve worked that i never felt left out on anything, I always was appreciated for my job though it was a temp, I really enjoyed working there
I worked there on a short-term arrangement as part of a rehabilitation process for getting back into the work force. I found ALL the staff and management to very professional and compassionate and the work atmosphere to be unparalleled to any work environment I have had in my professional career.
This summer job was my favourite by far. The people who work here are incredible and clearly passionate about their work. It is a very inspiring environment and allows for personal growth, as well as opportunities to gain valuable experience. I highly recommend this as a place of work and I hold my time here as a summer student with great regard.
When I started with CMHA I was treated very well. They would accommodate my school schedule, and work around my time off and other volunteer commitments perfectly. I was with them for a number of years and when I informed my supervisor that I needed her reference to apply for another job, that is when things started to change. I was no longer a priority and neither was the program I was running. I was given extra work projects and took on the duties of my other staff member that left with no extra pay or compensation. They give no benefits, no sick days, no mental health days. If you want to take any of those they go unpaid or you have to dip into your accrued vacation. The pay is on the lower end of the social services field, with no extra benefits whatsoever. It seemed like a fight to even get a paid day off to go do external training. Management would make decisions about my position and program without my input on how their decision would affect me, and when I informed them that I was burning out, nothing was done. I was left in the dark with a lot of things and had my knowledge and skills stepped on by management numerous times, making me feel not worthy and capable. I went on a medical leave for 8 weeks, and upon my return they had hired someone else for my position and put my in a back office doing assistant work. By law they do not have to give your position back, but they do have to give you comparable work and what I was given was not comparable. CMHA has been a great door agency for me in the social services field, and honestly I gained a lot from working with - plus...
The learning opportunities are endless. CMHA definitely knows how to treat their employees. Working at CMHA is an awesome experience. The staff are friendly and cooperative. Management is there when you need them. Flexible work hours and work from home policy are also very convenient. Great employee benefits.
I worked at the Canadian Mental Health Association many years ago as a man with a mental health issue. I found my experience there very comfortable and supportive and the kindness and the professionalism of the employees exemplinary. I highly recommend this organization for others who have experience with mental health issues themselves or know others that do.
