Job Summary

An excellent senior opportunity for a dedicated professional

The Ministry works together with Indigenous Child and Family Services Agencies (ICFSA, formerly Delegated Aboriginal Agencies) to deliver inclusive, culturally respectful, responsive and accessible services that support the well-being of indigenous children, youth and families. Through delegation agreements, the Provincial Director of Child Welfare (the Director) gives authority to ICFSAs, and their employees, to undertake administration of all or parts of the Child, Family and Community Service Act. The amount of responsibility undertaken by each agency is the result of negotiations between the ministry and the indigenous community served by the agency, and the level of delegation provided by the Director.

Currently, there are 23 Indigenous Child and Family Services Agencies with various levels of delegation: three can provide voluntary services and recruit and approve foster homes; eleven have the additional delegation necessary to provide guardianship services for children in continuing care; and nine have the delegation required to provide, in addition to the above, full child protection, including the authority to investigate reports and remove children. The annual funding in delegated services is over $160 million.

The Finance Manager for ICFS oversees the administration and management of the funding agreements with the ICFSAs, leads various financial analysis and research on complex funding issues.

Job Requirements:
  • Professional accounting designation (CPA/CA/CMA/CGA), in good standing.
  • 2 years' experience interpreting, applying, implementing financial policies and procedures
  • 2 years' experience supervising staff, including assignment of work, development and evaluation of performance.

Preference may be given to applicants with the following:
  • Experience working with publicly funded service providers and Indigenous Child and Family Services agencies.
  • Experience in financial forecasting in public sector
