Princeton Community Profile: (Population 2,700) Situated in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, you will find the beautiful town of Princeton. The mountains and valleys make it a natural setting for fabulous, year-round outdoor activities and an outstanding vacation destination. Princeton's western heritage is as rich and deep as the gold and copper mines that honeycomb their way beneath the timbered landscape. It was natural, therefore, that the city decided in 1999 to adopt a western theme for Princeton.
Masters degree from an accredited educational institution in an Allied Health, Behavioural, or Social Science field relevant to the position.
Two years’ recent related experience in a mental health and substance use environment or an equivalent combination of education, training and experience.
