Your Opportunity:

In this role, you help clinicians and patients get the information they need to get a correct diagnosis, and restore, maintain, or optimize health. You’ll have the opportunity to perform daily processing of COVID samples. Alberta Precision Laboratories (APL) is the new, wholly-owned subsidiary of Alberta Health Services (AHS) and is ready to deliver high-quality, responsive diagnostic lab services to Albertans as a part of the provincial healthcare system. With competitive salaries, opportunities for professional development, and comprehensive benefits, including health and dental, you can truly thrive. A vibrant, youthful, and multicultural city in northwestern Alberta, the City of Grande Prairie has friendly, laid-back small-town vibes, merged with the urban amenities you would expect – arts and culture, sports, shopping, and a brand-new, state-of-the-art regional hospital and cancer center, set to open in 2021. With numerous parks and playgrounds, walking trails, Western Canada’s newest dinosaur museum, and hiking in the nearby northernmost tip of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains, there’s something for everyone. In addition to a competitive rate of pay, AHS currently has a Remote Retention Allowance in place to an annual maximum of $3,000. This allowance is non-pensionable & is payable on an hourly basis for all hours paid at the basic rate of pay. If you want to practice microbiology in a northern city with much to offer, this may be the opportunity for you! This position will be moving to the new Grande Prairie Regional Hospital when the new hospital opens. The successful candidate in this position accepts it knowing they will transfer over to the new site.


As a Medical Laboratory Technologist (MLT) I, you will be responsible for the daily processing, testing, results analysis and reporting of diagnostic samples within the laboratory department.
