Dietitians of Canada (DC), a professional association representing nearly 5,000 members at local, provincial, and national levels, provides a leadership voice for advancing health through nutrition and ensures that dietitians have the best opportunities to experience professional success throughout their careers. On behalf of its members and the dietetic profession, DC engages with policymakers, health practitioners, and the Canadian public to advance health through food and nutrition. As an organization, DC develops evidence-based standards and resources, promotes better access to dietitians, provides leadership in shaping food and nutrition policy, and recognizes members’ leadership and contributions to the profession.
With the upcoming departure of DC’s current Chief Executive Officer, the organization seeks an outstanding new leader to help the organization navigate through the changing landscape, deliver value to members, and create opportunities for dietitians to advance health through food and nutrition. Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is responsible for the successful operations and financial management, team development, and strategic leadership towards growth and sustainability of the organization.
The new CEO will be a visionary, transparent, and approachable leader with a track record of success in change management and business leadership towards organizational sustainability. The ideal candidate champions diversity, equity, and inclusion and establishes strong, productive relationships with staff, members, and a wide variety of stakeholders. Possessing exceptional business and financial acumen along with exemplary decision-making and communications skills, the CEO sought will be inspired by and attuned to the priorities and values of DC. Knowledge of and/or training in dietetics, Policy Governance® and bilingualism (French and English) are preferred. Drawing on substantive experience in change management and people leadership, the preferred candidate will ensure and accelerate DC’s ability to bring value to its members, deliver on its vision and priorities, and elevate the influence of the profession.
