With a current population just over 8000, the District of Kitimat is looking to attract an accomplished Director of Planning and Development.  Reporting directly to the Chief Administrative Officer, the Director of Planning and Development will oversee the planning department and play an integral role on the District’s senior management team.

As the District looks ahead to a surge of investment in housing, commercial, and light industrial space, the new Director will help the District live up to its tag line: “A Marvel of Nature and Industry.”  The role will focus on leveraging development and investor interests into community benefits that will have long-term impact. 

Your background includes a graduate or undergraduate degree in planning or a related field, knowledge of local government practices in community planning, and a proven ability to manage planning projects. You fully understand the challenges you will meet and have an accomplished track record demonstrating your capabilities. This would be an excellent opportunity for an experienced mid-level Planner who is seeking a new challenge in a senior position.
