This is an exciting opportunity for an inspiring, agile, strategic, empathic, and empowering leader to join the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer as its next Vice President, Cancer Control.
The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (the Partnership) works with Canada’s healthcare and cancer care community as well as its partners to ensure fewer people get cancer, more people survive cancer and those living with the disease have a better quality of life. The Partnership supports partners across the country to accelerate and introduce programs that will restore and sustain cancer care in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, drive faster innovation to improve access to world-class screening, address inequities in care for underserviced populations – including First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples – and advance the priorities and actions of the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control 2019-2029.
Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Vice President, Cancer Control is responsible for leading the Cancer Control Division in planning and implementing projects and initiatives with an equity first approach to achieve organizational priorities. You build and grow effective working relationships with a wide range of stakeholders to deliver on the Division’s mandate while contributing to the Partnership’s overall vision to reduce the burden of cancer on all people in Canada. You guide and provide mentorship to program teams that specialize in all parts of the cancer continuum – prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, clinical care, survivorship, and palliative care – and that work in partnership with provincial, territorial and Indigenous governments, cancer programs and agencies, health organizations, national Indigenous organizations, community agencies, other health sectors and health-care professionals.
