Phoenix Society is located on the shared, unceded traditional territory of the Katzie, Semiahmoo, Kwantlen, Musqueam, and other Coast Salish Peoples.

The Phoenix Society is a not-for-profit society and registered charity committed to developing partnerships, building community capacity, and offering meaningful and sustainable solutions for individuals. For over thirty years, the Phoenix Society has provided accessible services and opportunities to people who face barriers related to substance use, mental health, housing, education, criminal justice involvement and/or employment. Integrated treatments provide early-recovery residential addiction services; employment and educational assistance; and longer-term post-treatment transitional housing, and home-ownership opportunities.

In 2020, the Phoenix Society opened Phoenix House a 10-bed residential substance use program designed to provide transitional housing for individuals preparing for residential treatment program, support recovery or return to home. Moving forward, Phoenix Society will see the continued expansion with the implementation of two new supportive housing projects, enhancing services across the Fraser Valley.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Operating Officer (COO) has oversight of the organization’s day-to-day operations, including aligning processes, systems, and people to ensure alignment with the organization’s mission and strategic objectives. The COO will support and enhance the operations of all programs as well as lead the implementation of new supportive housing projects. The COO also participates in strategic planning and budgeting initiatives as part of the senior management team.

This is a challenging and dynamic opportunity for an innovative non-profit leader who is committed to improving integrated treatment programming and facilities. The ideal candidate will have strong organizational abilities with excellent interpersonal, financial, governance and strategic planning skills, as well as a commitment to accessible services and opportunities. The ideal candidate will have a graduate degree (in Business, Social Work, Counselling, Education, Leadership, Psychology) with over seven years of progressive leadership experience preferably in a community-based setting. An equivalent mix of education and experience in a related field, will be considered.
