We have three licensed dispensing opticians, an office manager, and three Canadian Certified Optometric Assistants. All pre-testing and billing is done by staff. Wages and vacation to be discussed, estimated salary range is $125,000 to $150,000. We will cover your annual NSCO licensing fee (currently $1785.95).  You would work in Port Hawkesbury four days per week and travel, with staff, to Joseph-du-Moine one day per week.

Cape Breton has great beaches, trails, and golf courses. The town of Port Hawkesbury has many facilities for recreation including an arena, walking trails, playgrounds, curling rink, pool, baseball and soccer fields, squash courts, and gym. The area is known for its scenic beauty, which is great for people who enjoy the outdoors.
