Vice President, Corporate Services & Chief Financial Officer
The British Columbia Housing Management Commission (BC Housing) is a crown agency of the provincial government and is responsible for providing a range of housing programs for British Columbians. BC Housing, together with its partners, works across the housing continuum to: ensure the most vulnerable have housing and support options that provide stability and maximize independence; increase the supply of affordable and supported housing options for people with low and moderate incomes; administer rent assistance programs; oversee the management of provincial housing properties and programs; support strong non-profit and Indigenous housing sectors; and provide a licensing system in which residential builders achieve a high bar of professionalism. BC Housing seeks sustainable housing solutions that are supported by excellence in service delivery and research, and that take into account social, financial and environmental impacts.
With a compelling mandate in an organization which focuses on creating safe, affordable and quality housing for British Columbians, the Vice President, Corporate Services & Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is a critical member of the Executive Leadership Team and will be responsible for enabling the growth of the organization. Making a positive difference in people’s lives and communities is what those who go to work at BC Housing have top of mind every day.
Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), the CFO provides strategic financial, business and risk management advice to the CEO and Board of Commissioners with respect to the plans and operations of BC Housing, and leads the development of strategic business and financial strategies to accomplish the Commission’s objectives.

The incumbent directs the provision of financial, business planning, research and policy support, corporate administration, information management, and legal services in supporting the business and operational requirements of the Commission. The CFO builds strong working relationships with senior officials at the provincial and federal government level, in the banking, investment and industry sectors and with housing partners. The CFO serves as a key member of BC Housing’s Executive team and as a Director of the Provincial Rental Housing Corporation.
