PQCHC – 2015 Employer of Excellence
Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre is a winner of the 2015 Employer Excellence Award presented by Hire Immigrants Ottawa.
At the PQCHC, almost 50 per cent of its client base represents immigrant populations, a notably higher percentage than elsewhere in Ottawa. PQCHC proactively recruits staff and volunteers that are representative of its client base by working with local immigrant agencies. As a result, about 39 per cent of its staff, and 67 per cent of its volunteers, are representative of the diverse population it serves.
