Lead a community organization committed to empowering communities through fostering positive, healthy, and caring neighbourhoods.

Dixie Bloor Neighbourhood Centre (DBNC) is an accredited, non-profit, multi-service community- based agency which has been helping families in Mississauga to achieve continued health, independence, and happiness since 1988. DBNC offers a wide range of programs and services on multiple sites across the communities served and is a champion for people and communities who experience systemic barriers that impact their health and wellness, including immigrants, refugees, and newcomers to Canada. DBNC has an annual budget of $9.5M and a complement of 130 dedicated staff as well as many volunteers and active participants from the community. In 2019, DBNC received the third full accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

The current Executive Director is retiring after an accomplished tenure of twenty three years, and the Board is looking for an outstanding leader with a passion for healthy communities, social inclusion, diversity, and equity who will inspire that same passion across the organization and work collaboratively with funders and community partners to continue to deliver and develop services that meet their needs in an integrated and holistic manner. 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, equity, inclusion and diversity and improved population health and wellness for the communities served.

The Executive Director will have at least five years of relevant non-profit senior management experience. Experience in volunteer sector leadership would be an asset. The Executive Director will hold a graduate degree in business or public administration, or a combination of equivalent education, job-related training, and experience. An extensive knowledge of working with government-funded programs and a proven track record of developing and securing funding strategies for a major non-profit organization will be essential. As a visionary and inspirational leader with excellent interpersonal and communications 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.
