Personal Care Aide

Personal Care Aides (sometimes called Continuing Care Aides, or CCAs) work as aides and caregivers in long term care facilities, home care, and in primary care facilities. Trained Personal Care Aides provide personal care and assist in the activities of daily living for clients/patients/residents to encourage their optimal level of functioning.

The Earn While you Learn Program is a partnership between Saskatoon Health Authority and Saskatoon Business College (Personal Care Aide diploma program). The goal of the program is to increase the number of employees available for relief work while giving the individuals the opportunity to earn income while they study. Starting wage is $21.61 per hour.
