EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR:

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Executive Director will be energized by the opportunity to increase access to healthy food in a manner that maintains dignity, builds health and community, and challenges inequality. The ED is responsible for the strategic leadership of The Stop through supporting its operations, programs, strategic direction, and board governance. The ED will lead and engage The Stop’s high-performing senior management team to foster an inclusive culture where the staff and volunteer community are supported and inspired to do their best work. The ED must work to create a culture that works in support of and collaboratively with the union (Public Service Alliance of Canada). Externally, the ED is involved in fundraising activities and with developing and supporting cross-sectoral partnerships and networks to build a healthier, more inclusive city.
