Call for applicants for Canadian Mountain Network Executive Director


The Canadian Mountain Network (CMN) is seeking an Executive Director to provide operational leadership, direction and oversight for the organization, as well as support the collaborative development of network strategy with the co-Research Directors and the Board of Directors. This new role will amalgamate two current positions, those of President and Managing Director.

The CMN supports the resilience and health of Canada’s mountain peoples and places through research partnerships based on Indigenous and Western ways of knowing that inform decision-making and action. Established in early 2019 as a not-for-profit corporation hosted by the University of Alberta, CMN is the country’s first formal research organization dedicated to advancing our understanding of mountain systems, which provide diverse and important benefits to Canadians living both near and far from these distinctive and iconic landscapes.

The Executive Director is an officer of the Board of Directors of the CMN and is to be appointed in a manner and for a term consistent with the by-laws. The Executive Director is accountable to the Board of Directors as a whole, working particularly closely with and supporting the Board Chair, other Board Officers, and Committee Chairs. Together with the Board of Directors, the Executive Director is collectively accountable to the members, community, funders and other stakeholders and is expected to develop and nurture those relationships by acting in the true spirit of reconciliation.

The CMN is committed to an equitable, diverse and inclusive workforce. Applications from all qualified persons are welcome. They encourage women; First Nations, Métis and Inuit persons; members of visible minority groups; persons with disabilities; persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity and expression; and all those who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas and the Network to apply.

Applications, as well as any inquiries, should be directed to [email protected]. Applications must be submitted by midnight Mountain Standard Time on Monday, 30 November 2020.
