The Opportunity to Make a Difference

Vice President, Human Resources

British Columbia First Nations, the Province of British Columbia (BC), and the Government of Canada have forged a new relationship and a series of precedent-setting agreements leading to the creation of a new, first of its kind, Health Authority. The First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) has now taken over the administration of federal health programs and services previously delivered by Health Canada’s First Nations Inuit Health Branch – Pacific Region. They are working with the Province and First Nations across BC to address service gaps through new partnerships, closer collaboration, and health systems innovation. 

Setting a unique and historical model for positive change, the FNHA’s mission is to support BC First Nations individuals, families and communities to achieve and enjoy the highest level of health and wellness by: working with them on their health and wellness journeys; honouring traditions and cultures; and championing First Nations health and wellness within the FNHA organization and with all of the FNHA’s partners. 

The Role

As the FNHA celebrates its first anniversary, an exciting, challenging and rewarding opportunity for a transformational Human Resources leader now exists. Through the understanding and practicing of FNHA’s Shared Directives, this ground-breaking role will support the creation of a new workplace culture rooted in Indigenous ways of being. With the vision of healthy, self-determining and vibrant First Nations children, families and communities in BC, FNHA will work with its partners to improve the health status of First Nations people in the province.

The Vice President, Human Resources, through the embodiment of the organization’s Operating Principles and the WELLNESS philosophy, will support the overall success of the FNHA and the senior executive team while providing expert leadership to ensure that the FNHA's human resource (HR) issues are managed effectively and that FNHA’s priorities, goals and strategies are implemented successfully. As a strategic and results-focused leader, you will guide and support the creation of a new Indigenous-centric, community driven and nation-based corporate culture ensuring that HR initiatives are aligned to the FNHA’s vision and its key goals.
