Program Information

School:Cambrian College
Faculty:Community Services
Field of Study:Health Services/Allied Health/Health Sciences, General
Description:Navigators assist people in accessing a variety of supports across the lifespan, including, but not limited to, mental health support, legal support, health care and financial support. Support is often required during transitional points of care, such as youth transitioning to adult services or an older adult preparing to enter long-term care. Accessing services and transitioning between types of care can be complicated and frustrating. Navigators, also referred to as care coordinators or case managers, serve as a guide to help people obtain the help they need.

As a student in the program, you will build expertise in how to locate resources within your community as well as provincially. You'll have the opportunity to network with a multitude of guest speakers across a variety of sectors to help you build connections with professionals in the field.
