Chief Administrative Officer

The Village of Cumberland, possibly one of the most delightful small towns on Vancouver Island, invites qualified individuals to apply for the position of Chief Administrative Officer (CAO).

This caring, innovative, and sustainable community of 4,000 people presents a great opportunity for a seasoned public sector executive, well versed in the art of local government, to work efficiently with an effective Mayor and Council. Successful candidates must demonstrate a record of practical growth, collaboration, cost effectiveness, and communication expertise.

Public participation is genuinely welcomed in Cumberland.  The community and the Council use the Regional Growth Plan and Official Community Plan as important guides to strategy, with a key focus on sustainability. Cumberland operates its own utilities; and honours its history and tradition.  The next CAO will have the drive and energy to help the Village engage in public consultation and develop new funding opportunities, while helping Cumberland to retain its authentic character.

Located in the Comox Valley on the unceded traditional territory of the K’ómoks First Nation, Cumberland offers an abundance of recreational choices, including parks and trails, playgrounds and indoor spaces, and mountain and lake excursion opportunities.  Cumberland is situated minutes from the City of Courtenay and three hours to the City of Victoria; and the Village’s own commercial core contains businesses in a variety of sectors. Schooling options for kindergarten to grade nine are available in the Village as well as a nature-based preschool, with options for higher grades and college in nearby Courtenay.
