Métis Nation British Columbia (MNBC) represents nearly 90,000 self-identified Métis people in BC. To date, 19,000 Métis citizens are provincially registered with MNBC. The Métis National Council and the Provincial Government of British Columbia, as well as the Federal Government of Canada, recognize Métis Nation British Columbia as the Governing Nation for Métis in BC. MNBC represents thirty-nine Métis Chartered Communities in British Columbia, and its mandate is to develop and enhance opportunities for Métis communities by implementing culturally relevant social and economic programs and services.
Reporting to the President and responsible to the Board of Directors, the primary objective of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is to provide the link between the Board and the operation in advancing the goals and purpose of MNBC. In that capacity, the CEO is accountable for the operational leadership and management of MNBC in accordance with the strategic goals and direction set by the Board. The CEO is expected to report to the Board on an ongoing basis in respect to issues and results and to bring forward recommendations in respect to policies, programs, services, and staff where applicable. The CEO sets targets, prepares annual business plans and budgets, oversees all operations and issues, delegates, and monitors performance. The CEO works with external partners and stakeholders to ensure opportunities for MNBC are leveraged in a way that secures its growth and sustainability and represents the organization in reporting to federal and provincial governments as required.
The ideal candidate brings senior executive experience in a growing, dynamic organization. He or she is a strategic and big picture thinker with natural leadership skills who possesses strong relationship building qualities and a commitment to delivering exceptional programs and services and best practices in governance.

The incumbent is known for his or her ability to develop credibility and effective, trusting working relationships with elected officials, staff, external stakeholders, and community members.
