Stantec Senior Contract Administrator, Healthcare in Toronto, Ontario

Your Opportunity

We could design buildings just because we can, but we’d rather create places that inspire. Through our Architecture and Interior Design work, we challenge design ideas of the past to create spaces that foster a culture of collaboration—spaces that are designed for community.

We believe good design extends beyond the physical elements of a space—good design shapes our lives, influences our behaviors and interactions, and has purpose. We strive to design spaces that are meaningful and memorable for our communities. Join our team of creative professionals and work with us to create inspiring spaces for all.

We have a number of projects in and around the Toronto area that require a Senior Contract Administrator to be part of our award-winning team.
