CancerCare Manitoba (CCMB) is one of the earliest cancer control agencies in Canada. With headquarters and two major sites in Winnipeg on the Health Sciences Centre campus and St. Boniface General Hospital, CCMB operates a Manitoba-wide program of cancer control and blood disorder management and is a major referral centre for the Keewatin District of the Northwest Territories and Northern Ontario. It is closely affiliated with the University of Manitoba (where clinical and scientific staff hold faculty appointments), major academic health sciences centres, and the province’s regional health authorities. CCMB works with the Canadian Association of Provincial Cancer Agencies and the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer on national issues and initiatives in order to develop a robust Pan-Canadian network of cancer control centres.
Reporting to CCMB’s governing board, the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is responsible for the skillful stewardship of CCMB’s human, material, and financial resources, and for providing leadership to the organization’s clinical, research, education and community outreach enterprises. The CEO is the chief representative of CCMB to affiliated institutions and all other relevant bodies at the local, regional, national, and international levels. The CEO will lead CCMB with dynamism and vision, and in ways that reflect CCMB’s core values (a patient/family-driven focus, respect, teamwork, stewardship, and continuous learning and improvement), as it seeks to reduce and, where possible, to eliminate the burden of cancer, in all its dimensions, on the people of Manitoba.
The ideal candidate will have a substantial track record of success in a senior leadership role, in a large tertiary academic health care organization, conducting advanced clinical, scientific and educational programs. He/she will be an exceptional communicator with a collaborative and collegial style that allows for the building and development of positive and productive relationships, both within CCMB and with its many provincial and national partners. A full appreciation of, and commitment to, the special mission of CancerCare Manitoba will be essential; an MD degree will be considered an asset.
