Executive Director – Pipe Line Contractors Association of Canada

With a history dating back 68 years, the Pipe Line Contractors Association of Canada (PLCAC) was formed to represent the Canadian contractors in labour relations matters and to develop a Canadian-based workforce with the specialized technical, trade, and craft skills required for pipeline construction and maintenance.

The PLCAC negotiates and renews with the four Canada-wide unions the collative agreements covering the pipeline industry. The Association also actively liaises with pipeline owning companies and other external stakeholders as an advocate for the unionized pipeline construction industry.

Reporting to the President of the association, the Executive Director will have oversight of the overall operations of the organization, acting as an advisor to the Board and as an ambassador and strategic leader for the industry. Working in close collaboration with the management team and Board, and with a complex group of industry stakeholders, the Executive Director will foster a trusting and accountable corporate culture and play a key role in all things related to labour relations, the annual conference, member engagement and the day-to-day running of the association.

With an entrepreneurial spirit, the ideal candidate is a self-starter, not afraid to roll up their sleeves to get the job done and making things happen without access to big company resources.  A strategist, the Executive Director must bring the foresight and awareness to see where the industry is going and how the association can support its members to get there.  With strong business acumen, the successful candidate will bring experience and passion for the industry, solid leadership skills and have an outstanding ability to build relationships.
