The Royal Ottawa Hospital of- fers several programs for mental health care, advocacy, research, and education, in which it em- ploys registered nurses (RNs), registered practical nurses (RPNs) and orderlies. The collective agreement with Quebec firefighter, with 2 jobs, burned by machinations of airport employer A TEMPORARY firefighter at a Quebec airport was dismissed for not committing to becoming a permanent firefighter if needed, but that wasn't a condition of his employment when offered the job, according to an arbitrator.

The job offer stated that Paquet would be subject to "the work- ing conditions of the temporary firefighter" out- lined in the collective agreement. Paquet also informed the airport that he would be working as a permanent firefighter for the City of Lévis, Que. In October 2016, a new fire chief started at the airport with instructions to evaluate the effective- ness of its fire department.
