They are strong collaborators and communicators, and they are willing to take initiative to provide the best possible programs and services.

CAN is committed to providing equal employment opportunity to all individuals without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, marital status, height, weight, or the presence of a non-job related medical condition or disability.
