Reporting to the Deputy Minister, you will oversee the resolution of Treaty Land Entitlement claims and provide oversight in the management of the Aboriginal Consultation Office to ensure Alberta meets its legal duty to consult with First Nations and Métis communities. From an Indigenous relations perspective, you will provide leadership in supporting land and resource management policies, legislative and regulatory initiatives, and other Crown-led initiatives. Applying a systems approach and actively consulting with Indigenous communities and other stakeholders will be critical as your senior management team works to enhance key relationships, develop strategic initiatives and coordinate policy issues.


You bring significant related executive leadership and policy development experience as well as experience working with differing political levels. As a progressive leader, you are a skilled collaborator, negotiator and relationship builder able to influence complex decisions that impact a large stakeholder base.  You bring a deep understanding of the history, cultures, and contexts of First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities and law, and a reputation as a collaborator skilled at engaging and building trusting relationships. Your ability to inspire and empower teams and capacity for facilitating systemic change will position you for success. An understanding of the cultures and contexts of First Nations and Métis communities will position you well in this role.  A university undergraduate degree is required. Knowledge of Aboriginal Law, a related degree or a law degree would be an asset.
