  • Making certain that all programs are provided with kindness, respect, compassion, and dignity.

Likewise, you will demonstrate the same degree of leadership and care toward over 200 staff members who work in challenging situations daily. This means supporting them with mentoring and training, and by providing regular performance feedback.

You have senior level management experience coupled with a deep understanding of the health care sector. You are a collaborative leader with an impressive track record building consensus among many partners such as governments, employees, unions, residents, health authorities, and the community at large.

You are familiar with the challenges facing the long-term care sector, and you bring well-rounded expertise in finance, administration, human resources, operations, physical plant, health and safety, and stakeholder relations.

You have a Master’s degree (MSW, MBA, MPA, or MHA) or advanced education that will allow you to complete the degree within a short time.

You possess well-developed personal qualities including integrity, initiative, communication and leadership skills. Further, you have a strong appreciation for governance issues and understand the importance of an effective Board/staff relationship.
