They will provide leadership in a context of transformation and continuous improvement in line with the strategic objectives of the Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay (CBHSSJB), ministerial orientations and expected results.

They will proactively apply their expertise and best practices to the various methods for opportunity analyses and to mechanisms for project monitoring and control, thereby promoting excellence in compliance with established scope, cost, scheduling and quality parameters.

The successful candidate will be responsible for validating the content of pre-project files and overseeing the quality of opportunity cases, business cases, health status reports and annual reports in accordance with the requirements of the Ministère de la Santé et des Services Sociaux (MSSS).

This will require participating in project governance in order to fully understand the issues and effectively support the CBHSSJB in a context of transformation and continuous improvement in line with ministerial orientations, our specific issues and expected results.

The successful candidate will be working during a time of major change and great complexity resulting from the merger and integration of several institutions with multiple facilities, missions and professions.
