Want to join our contractors list? Fill out the form below!

The goal of this form is to gather information on the talented people across the province and create a list of contractors with a variety of skills.

Engaging those in community work from across the province is an important part of the work at IONS. We welcome and prioritize the unique contributions people bring in terms of their geographic location in the province, education and lived experiences, culture, ethnicity, Indigenous status, race, spoken languages, gender identity and expression, age, religion, ability, sexual orientation and beliefs.

We encourage applications from those from African Nova Scotian, Indigenous, racialized, disabled, and 2SLGBTQIA+ communities. We are intentional in our approach to contract work and will prioritize diversity in our selection process. If you are a member of an equity-deserving group, and comfortable doing so, please self-identify below.

Please note, filling out this form is not a job application. When IONS is hiring for a position, we will not be looking at this list. If you would like to apply for a job at IONS when they are advertised, please follow the outlined process on the job posting.
