Central Interior Native Health Society

The Central Interior Native Health Society (CINHS) is an innovative primary health care clinic located in Prince George, British Columbia, on the traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh people.  Founded on Indigenous leadership and community-based advocacy, the CINHS was established in 1991 to meet the unique health needs of the Indigenous population of Prince George.

The Executive Director will report directly to an Indigenous Board of Directors and is supported by a strong Administrative Team.  The successful candidate will be responsible for strategic directions, overall operations and program delivery of the Clinic, and the Society’s affairs.  The right candidate will be proficient in Human Resource, Financial, Long Range Planning, External Relations and Research management.  The right candidate will be able to lead a very diverse cultural and professional team.

Candidates are to submit a cover letter and their most current resume.  In addition they will be asked to write a 500 word, typed double spaced submission on “Health status for Indigenous populations is lower on virtually every measure compared to other Canadians.  How do you explain the root causes of these differences in health status?”   Not complying with this request will disqualify the candidate. These are to be submitted electronically to tammy.belcourt@cinhs.org, or to the attention of Tammy Belcourt at 365 George Street by June 19th, 2017 at 4:30 p.m.
