Calian Health Nursing Services

Who We Are

Calian Health is one of Canada’s largest, national health services organizations with over 10 years of experience in the management of healthcare professionals and health programs. 
Through a network of over 1,800 healthcare professionals, Calian supports over six million patient visits per year at over 180 clinic locations across Canada.

What We Do

Although the Government of Nunavut has a full-time professional nursing staff, the use of contracted agency relief nurses is necessary to provide the required nursing coverage. We have direct relevant experience working in multi-cultural environments and possess all of the skills necessary to effectively communicate and function within them.

Calian's casual contract nurses are available on an as and when required basis. Nursing categories include:

  • Community health nurses
  • Registered nurses 
  • Licensed practical nurses    
  • Public health nurses
  • Mental health nurses

Calian Health's nurses go through in-depth screening to ensure that they meet the licensing and credentialing requirements to be employed in northern, remote areas.


A Professional and Reliable Health Services Company

Calian takes full management responsibility for the performance of the contract including locating, hiring and managing all personnel as required and to the complete satisfaction of our clients with respect to the delivery of service. .  And with sophisticated back office support found with a publicly-traded company, we proudly provide accurate and flexible billing based on our clients' needs and systems.
