Advisory: Fraudulent Employment

West Park does not recruit internationally for staff positions

West Park Healthcare Centre does not actively recruit internationally for nursing, therapist or other healthcare staff positions.

Any recruitment efforts and job offers in other countries using West Park’s name, our logo or the names of individuals working at West Park are fake and should be ignored.  

In the past, job scams targeting nurses and other healthcare professionals in India and the Philippines have falsely pretended to be from West Park or other Ontario hospitals. They have often required money to be paid during the recruitment process. West Park is not associated with any such recruitment and we encourage anyone contacted to not participate in this scam. 

As an ethical employer, West Park Healthcare Centre has never and will never authorize any person, agency or recruitment firm to collect/receive payment from candidates at any point during the recruitment and employment process.

If you become aware of a family member or friend of yours outside of Ontario who has been contacted using this or any other fraudulent schemes, please urge them to not participate.

Here are some helpful tips should you receive recruitment information that seems fraudulent.
