There is a new collective agreement in place at the Community Care Access Center covering Northeastern Ontario.

The nurses ratified the deal after the Ontario Nurses Association recommended accepting it.

The 300 nurses provide a wide range of services including help in mental health and addictions areas.

The nurses are spread across the northeast and among the communities they serve are Cochrane, Kapuskasing and Timmins.
