About The Centre for Effective Practice

The Centre for Effective Practice is one of the largest independent knowledge translation organizations for primary care in Canada. We bring together knowledge, evidence, expertise, and resources to ensure frontline providers have the information they need to deliver high-quality care and improve patients’ health outcomes. In Ontario alone, our work reaches over 18,000 healthcare providers each year through established relationships with key organizations, medical schools, colleges, and associations.

As a federal not for profit organization, our objective is to identify barriers to optimal practice and produce practical solutions to address these barriers. We achieve this through the development of evidence summaries and clinical toolkits, quality improvement planning, and implementing various knowledge translation interventions including provider education, academic detailing, and integration of evidence into decision support systems. To design and execute effective approaches to improve care, we base our efforts on the highest quality clinical and implementation evidence.


Position: Information Manager

As an information manager, the successful candidate will take on a leadership role with project teams and clients in assigned work with a specific focus on establishing a strong evidence base for knowledge translation activities, overseeing information collection and synthesis, and supporting the delivery of quality care in various clinical settings (e.g. primary care, hospitals, long term care). With strong interpersonal and project management skills, the successful candidate will be a key member of the team, supporting provincial and national level projects with the goal of delivering every project on time, within budget and within scope. The nature of CEP’s work requires an individual who is able to work on multiple projects in a fast-paced work environment with competing deadlines. This is a mid-senior level position within the organization. CEP is looking for a candidate with strong management skills and with the experience working in health care necessary to understand the needs of our clients and design solutions that build from best practice.
