LAMP Community Health Centre
Lead a community-based organization whose mission is to improve the health of individuals in the communities served and, working together with community partners, support everyone’s right to health with a focus on health equity and social justice
LAMP Community Health Centre (LAMP) is a multi-service community health centre driven by a mission to improve quality of life in the communities served by supporting people to reach their fullest potential. With a main site in South Etobicoke, Toronto West and a satellite site in East Mississauga, LAMP is a champion for people and communities who experience systemic barriers that impact their health outcomes. LAMP supports a wide-range of community programs, health care services, and advocacy initiatives that promote the physical, emotional, mental, ethno-cultural, social and economic well-being of the communities served.
Following the decision of the current Executive Director to retire after a successful tenure of seventeen years, the Board is looking for an outstanding leader with a passion for health equity and social justice. The Executive Director will inspire that same passion across the organization and work collaboratively with funders and community partners to promote health equity and improved access across the communities served. Reporting directly to an engaged Board of Directors and working closely with committed management and dedicated staff, the Executive Director will be a visionary organizational leader and strategic community partner committed to service excellence, social justice and improved population health for the communities served.
The Executive Director will have at least seven years of leadership experience working in community-based services and ideally with marginalized populations, and will hold a graduate degree in public administration, health administration or the social sciences or be able to demonstrate equivalent experience. An extensive knowledge of the Canadian healthcare system and an understanding of the social determinants of health will be essential. As a visionary and inspirational leader with excellent interpersonal skills and proficient team building skills, the Executive Director will promote a culture of collaboration, excellence and continuous improvement and demonstrate an understanding of working in a culturally diverse and changing community environment.
LAMP has an annual budget of more than $12M and a complement of 260 dedicated staff as well as many volunteers and active participants from the community. LAMP opened its doors in 1976 and was one of the first community health centres in Ontario. Since then, LAMP has continued to grow and evolve and forty years on, serves communities reflective of the city’s broad diversity of racial ethnic backgrounds and of gender identities. LAMP’s East Mississauga satellite location is serving a very active need among trans people for medical services, including mental health supports. LAMP serves more than 20,000 people every year through an increasingly broad range of medical and dental services, children and youth programs, family programs and community support services. In January 2018 LAMP CHC received full accreditation for 4 years from the Canadian Centre for Accreditation.
The closing date for receipt of applications is March 30, 2018.
