NOTICE OF VACANCY

CANADIAN MUSEUM OF NATURE

Chairperson (part-time position)

The origins of the Canadian Museum of Nature date back to 1856 when its predecessor, the Geological Survey of Canada, was given the mandate to exhibit its native collections of plants, animals, minerals and fossils. Home to one of the world’s largest natural history collections, including 24 major science collections of more than 10 million specimens, the Museum covers four billion years of Earth history. Its current status as a federal Crown Corporation dates from 1990, when the Museums Act was proclaimed. As a national institution and member of the Canadian Heritage Portfolio, the Museum’s mandate is to increase, throughout Canada and internationally, interest in, knowledge of, and appreciation and respect for, the natural world.

The Canadian Museum of Nature is governed by a Board of Trustees composed of a Chairperson, a Vice-Chairperson and nine other trustees. The Board has the overall stewardship of the Corporation and is expected to provide strategic guidance to management and to oversee the activities of the Corporation. It has a duty to act in the best interests of the Corporation and to exercise care and due diligence. The Chairperson is responsible for the proper conduct of the Board meetings in such a way that the Corporation carries out its mandate and objectives effectively, ensures good value for public funds, remains viable and holds management accountable for its performance.

The successful candidate should possess a degree from a recognized university or an acceptable combination of relevant education, job-related training and/or experience. The qualified candidate should possess experience on a board of directors/ trustees, preferably as chairperson, along with experience at the senior management level in the private or public sector.

The qualified candidate should possess the capacity to develop and maintain effective relationships with the Museum’s management, the Minister of Canadian Heritage and his/her office, the Deputy Minister of Canadian Heritage, and the Museum’s key stakeholders and partners.
