Canadian Centre for Accreditation

Executive Director

Lead an organization rooted in community service delivery offering an accreditation program specifically geared to organizations that provide community-based health and social services.

The Canadian Centre for Accreditation (CCA) is a registered federal non-profit organization which was formed in 2012 as a third-party accreditation body by five associations of community service providers: Association of Ontario Health Centres; Children’s Mental Health Ontario; Family Service Ontario; the Ontario and Canadian Associations of Credit Counselling Services; and the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies. CCA accredits over 220 organizations from a wide range of service sectors including children and youth services, community-based primary health care, family and community support and social services, credit counselling and mental health and addiction services.

CCA’s accreditation program combines clear and transparent expectations with a responsive assessment approach that recognizes community service organizations within different communities, and with differing sizes, settings, service offerings and funding. CCA has a Board of ten Directors and a staff of seven, and maintains a roster of 200 volunteer reviewers to conduct accreditation reviews of participating organizations. CCA’s budget for the 2019/2020 fiscal year will be approximately $1M.

The Board is seeking an outstanding leader who has a passion for excellence in community service delivery and is motivated by continuous quality improvement and a commitment to a vision of building effective organizations to strengthen healthy and resilient communities. Reporting directly to an engaged Board of Directors and leading a small team of dedicated managers and staff, the Executive Director will be a visionary organizational leader and strategic community partner who will recognize the unique strengths of each local service provider, while championing quality at all levels. The Executive Director will also play a key role in working with the Board to develop a strategic direction which reflects the changing landscape of integrated health and social care and the value of nurturing healthy collaborative partnerships across communities and across sectors.

The Executive Director will have a minimum of five years of demonstrated leadership experience in the community-based non-profit sector and will hold a Master’s level qualification in human services, health administration, or business or an undergraduate degree combined with significant experience in leadership, management and governance. As a motivational and visionary leader with excellent interpersonal and relationship-building skills and with a track record of building strategic alliances, the Executive Director will promote a culture of collaboration, excellence and continuous improvement and demonstrate an understanding of working in a complex and changing community environment.

The closing date for receipt of applications is March 15, 2019.
