We are pleased to be conducting the search to find the inaugural Executive Director for the Canadian Administrator of Video Relay Services (CAV).

This is an exciting and well-funded opportunity to design from the ground up a comprehensive regime (both platform and services) that does not currently exist elsewhere and that will become an archetype for other countries.  The Executive Director of CAV will lead the strategy, development, implementation and management of VRS across Canada, and deliver a highly anticipated service that will improve the lives of Deaf and hard of hearing Canadians.  Further information on historical context, role mandate, and the ideal candidate sought for this leadership role are provided in more detail in the attached executive briefs.

Please feel free to share with your network as you wish, and should you have a specific recommendation/nomination, you can submit to us in confidence.  If you have any questions or require any additional information, please let us know - we welcome the opportunity to share further details and to understand your perspective.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
