Full Time, Permanent
Board of Directors
“Bringing relevance and awareness to our nation’s diverse past, illuminating the people, places, and events that unite us as Canadians”
Established as a National Charitable organization in 1994, Canada’s National History Society (Canada’s History) is headquartered in Winnipeg with 16 full and part-time employees.
Canada’s History is a leader in building and nurturing a passion for learning about Canada’s past, whether that learning takes place in a school classroom or in our own backyard. The organization develops resources to promote popular interest in Canadian history and delivers, across multiple platforms, outreach, teaching materials, educator training, community fairs, digital content, and other programs to engage Canadians in learning about our history. The organization celebrates excellence in history by administering the annual Governor General’s History Awards presented at Rideau Hall.
Canada’s History is building a growing history network of thousands of educators committed to best practices in learning and thinking historically. In addition to a growing digital program, it publishes "Canada's History" magazine and "Kayak: Canada's History Magazine for Kids," and provides the public and history educators with a wide variety of bilingual resources through via digital channels at canadashistory.ca and histoirecanada.ca. The organization strengthens the national network of Heritage Fair organizations across the country through its Young Citizen's/Jeunes Citizens initiatives.
Canada’s History derives its annual revenue of $3.6 million in roughly equal parts from donors, magazine subscriber-members, and government. Building, maintaining, and growing relationships with major gift donors is a prime responsibility of the President & CEO.
Reporting to the Board of Directors, the President and CEO will bring passion and vision for the importance of learning history in Canada. This person is responsible for the day-to-day direction and the long-term financial viability of Canada’s National History Society and serves as the face of the organization. The CEO maintains and grows relationships with key stakeholders, especially donors and funding partners. Other audiences include government officials, history organization partners, member-subscribers, and advisors.
This senior management role requires a positive and thoughtful leader who upholds and promotes organizational values, who develops and implements timely initiatives aligned with the overall strategy, and who nurtures a collaborative working environment.
A competitive compensation package will be offered, complete with salary (range between $160,000 to $170,000) and benefits, commensurate with experience.
