Executive Director/Community Leader

L’Arche Comox Valley is seeking an energetic, compassionate individual who is willing to lead our community for an initial term of 4 years, with the possibility for renewal at the end of that period. In addition to being overall responsible for identifying and delivering on opportunities to fulfill the mission of L’Arche and uphold the values and philosophy outlined in the Servant Leadership Model, the Community Leader also acts as Executive Director and therefore is responsible for ensuring adherence with government standards and directives and local community policies. The Community Leader ensures that adequate structures, systems, resources, and processes are in place to meet the needs of the community. The Community Leader supervises other leadership team members and administrative staff and works closely with all stakeholders to manage the high-quality and person-centered care and well-being of the individual members of the local L’Arche homes and programs.

L’Arche Comox Valley is a vibrant, growth-oriented community that is well known in the area. We live in a beautiful, culturally rich environment surrounded by mountains and the ocean with a temperate climate. We currently have two buildings, Jubilee House, and the I Belong Centre where adults with intellectual abilities and those who support them live and work together. The I Belong Centre houses our offices, community gathering space, programs and six apartments for people living semi- independently. Plans are currently underway to build the Anchorage, a new housing project that will enable us to welcome more people to L’Arche Comox Valley, and a
capital campaign is in progress.
