Camp Quality Canada is currently seeking an Executive Director for its head office in Toronto. This is a broad leadership role, providing a positive, team-oriented approach to staff management at the head office and delivering responsive, appreciative support to camp directors and their volunteer teams. The Executive Director also acts as the external face of the organization, maintaining and enhancing its visibility and the effectiveness of its messaging.

  • An opportunity to work with a positive and dynamic board, a committed and creative head office staff, and a remarkable and dedicated team of volunteer camp directors and their enthusiastic volunteer staff.

  • An interesting mix involving the big-picture thinking, judgment and initiative required in building a leadership presence and the problem-solving, organizational and execution skills needed to manage successful follow-through.

  • A welcoming, friendly, long-term setting that offers stability and excellent benefits.
