The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District (ACRD)

The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District (ACRD) is situated in the heart of Vancouver Island. It includes the municipalities of Port Alberni, Tofino, and Ucluelet, the Treaty Nations of Huu-ay-aht, Uchucklesaht, Toquaht and Yuułuʔiłʔatḥ and six electoral areas, all encompassing the West Coast’s most dramatic and majestic landscapes.

This is an exciting time to join our team! We have an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated, energetic individual grounded with local government experience to take a leadership role as a key member of our senior management team.

The ACRD recently conducted a review of its services and the resources needed to safely and efficiently deliver them to the communities served by the ACRD. This process has focused the role of GMES more on the strategic and longer term elements of the ACRD’s Environmental Services and created the new
position, Manager of Solid Waste and Utilities Operations, to lead the daily operations of the Environmental Services Departments.

Reporting to the Chief Administrative Officer, the duties and responsibilities of the GMES include the development, evaluation and recommendation of delivery options for services that include water and waste water systems, landfills, airports, community and regional parks, and summer recreational programs. Additionally, the GMES works closely with the Board and its Committees on policy development and service levels while taking a leadership role in maintaining and improving occupational health and safety to ensure the safe and efficient delivery of services.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated superb planning, leadership, organization and supervisory skills. This high profile role requires a professional with excellent interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to interact effectively with an elected regional board, a management team, residents, and
business, a wide variety of volunteers, community groups and government agencies.

A diploma or certificate in Civil Engineering or Certified Engineering Technologist with 5 or more years of related experience in a local government environment with responsibility of overseeing multiple services would be an asset. An equivalent combination of education and experience will be considered. The complete job description is available at

This exempt position offers an attractive salary and comprehensive benefits package.
