Description

Revera is a leading owner, operator and investor in the senior living sector. We offer seniors’ apartments, independent living, assisted living, memory care and long term care. We understand how to create the best experience for people living in a Revera home. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to live a life of purpose, and we create environments that make that possible.

Our mission is to celebrate the human spirit in every way possible – and that applies to both our residents and our employees. There’s a lot that goes into being a member of our team – and there’s a lot that you’ll get out of the experience too. We go the extra mile to ensure that each member of our staff feels safe, secure, enriched and empowered in their role. So that everyone under our roof is given the opportunity to thrive, grow and make the most of every day.

Vaccines are a proven, safe and powerful weapon in our battle against COVID-19. Now that vaccines are widely available and recognizing that many of our staff are already vaccinated, vaccination will be a condition of employment for new hires, except when impossible due to legitimate, established exceptions. The vaccine must be a two-dose COVID-19 vaccination series approved by Health Canada. This is one more important step to protect both our residents and staff as we continue to battle this deadly virus.

To attract Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs) to work in long-term care (LTC) homes with the greatest need across Ontario, the Community Commitment Program for Nurses (CCPN) provides a $10,000 incentive to eligible nurses in exchange for a 12-month commitment to Revera sites across Ontario. Revera is partnering with HealthForce Ontario for this exciting initiative.

  • To be eligible for the CCPN incentive, a Nurse must:

    • Not have been employed as a nurse in Ontario in the six (6) months prior to being hired;

    • Hold a Certificate of Registration as a Registered Practical Nurse in good standing from the College of Nurses of Ontario;

    • Begin employment no later than November 15, 2021;

    • Commit to 12-months of employment at a full-time work schedule offered by the employer; and

    • Not simultaneously receive funds from the Ministry of Health for the Tuition Support Program for Nurses.
