Our retirement residences and long-term care homes have risen to the challenges of COVID-19. It’s why we’re now looking for candidates to fill many temporary positions—so we can continue to support our staff and deliver the best possible care to our residents.

Revera places health and safety as its top priority. We will provide all hires with appropriate training and we will actively screen all applicants for potential exposure to COVID-19. We encourage all employees and residents to practice the 3 W’s: wash your hands, wear your mask, and watch your distance. Additionally, staff and residents in our Long Term Care homes and Retirement residences are prioritized to receive the COVID-19 vaccine which is optional for each individual.
