Chief Executive Officer

Building Brighter Futures Together: Children’s Treatment Network (CTN) supports 20,000 children and youth with special needs in their homes, communities and schools by providing intake, service navigation and coordinated service planning, assessment and diagnostic services, specialized clinics and rehabilitation services, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech language therapy. CTN is accredited through CARF International, meeting internationally recognized organizational and program standards and signaling its commitment to quality by continually improving services, encouraging feedback and serving the community.

Founded in 2005 and funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, CTN offers services through contracted public and private partner organizations in the education, health and community sectors. CTN supports families in York Region and Simcoe County for all services through ten shared service sites across both catchments, offers school-based rehabilitation services in an expanded catchment area including Muskoka and Central Toronto, and also offers assessment and diagnostic services within Dufferin, Halton, Peel, Waterloo and Wellington. Through its innovative network model, CTN’s commitment to providing family-centred care is anchored by an electronic client record that is shared across its partner organizations and provides the foundation for integrated plans of care and services.

With the forthcoming retirement of CTN’s long-serving Chief Executive Officer (CEO), the Board of Directors is recruiting an outstanding leader for the position. Reporting to the Board, the CEO is responsible for the effective leadership and management of the day-to-day and long-term planning and development of CTN. In this role, the new CEO will draw upon their 10+ years of progressive leadership experience, ideally acquired within the not-for-profit, health care, rehabilitation or social service sectors, to help CTN move into its next phase of evolution and innovation that empowers children, youth and families with special needs to live their best lives.

The ideal candidate is a strategic, innovative and values-based leader who effectively builds trust, leads through influence and works with others to collaboratively realize CTN’s vision. Drawing on their substantial partnership and change management experience, the preferred candidate is a passionate, empathetic leader with outstanding business savvy, political acumen and interpersonal skills. Possessing exceptional listening and communication skills, the candidate sought will be inspired by CTN’s network model and its ability to improve the outcomes for children and youth with special needs, and their families. Most importantly, the ideal candidate is a champion of family-centred care and possesses a deep understanding of the children, youth and families CTN serves as well as the importance of effective partnerships in a network model.
