The Bank of Canada, Canada’s central bank, is the pre-eminent macroeconomic institution in Canada. Through its policies and actions, the Bank of Canada has an important impact on the economic lives of all Canadians.
The Bank of Canada is responsible for conducting monetary policy to keep inflation low, stable and predictable; contributing to a stable and well-functioning financial system; designing and issuing bank notes that Canadians can use with confidence; and providing high-quality funds-management services to the Government of Canada and other clients. The Bank contributes to global economic and financial stability, while steadfastly maintaining its independence.
The Bank has been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Employers for ten years in a row, and in 2018 was named Central Bank of The Year. It is an active and influential participant in helping shape global economic and financial policy through the G7, the G20, the Financial Stability Board, the Bank for International Settlements and other multilateral institutions.
The Bank is currently seeking a Senior Deputy Governor to be appointed for a seven-year term. In this complex and high-profile role, the successful candidate will work alongside the Governor and the Board of Directors to build upon the current organizational culture, and further enhance the Bank’s reputation for integrity, innovation and clear, open communication.
As the Bank’s second-in-command, the Senior Deputy Governor is delegated to act for the Governor as required and plays a key leadership role in the development of the Bank’s key policies and its corporate plan. You must have a sophisticated understanding of economics and finance, a deep knowledge of Canada’s financial system and its major players, and superior analytical and communication skills. You must be experienced in developing and delivering on a long-term organizational plan and executing strategy while providing inspirational leadership to a diverse and inclusive organization.
A Canadian citizen, you have the demonstrated ability to exercise sound judgment in a complex organization, articulate a long-term vision, and manage competing strategic priorities. You have effectively helped to lead an organization through change and uncertainty and can collaborate with a diverse range of partners and stakeholders. You have proven your ability to collaborate and operationalize complex policy and corporate decisions. Your unparalleled integrity and commitment to excellence will help the Bank maintain its independence and credibility with financial markets, key domestic and international stakeholders and partners, and the Canadian public.
