Job Information

The Regional Superintendent is responsible for providing the direction, strategic leadership and management of the implementation and delivery of all Municipal and Community Affairs (MACA) programs and services at the regional and community level. This needs to be strategically carried out in a manner that is consistent with MACA's mission and also with the unique needs of the Region. The Regional Superintendent leads the regional staff in proactively supporting community governments and other stakeholders to effectively deliver their key roles and responsibilities. At the same time the Regional Superintendent also coordinates and liaises with government Departments, agencies and other levels of government to champion the needs and interests of communities, as well as the Department.


The position is located in Inuvik and reports to the Assistant Deputy Minister. There are significant issues and opportunities facing community governments in the Northwest Territories, including their evolving and increasing authority and responsibility for areas including community infrastructure planning and construction, contracting and procurement, water quality, land administration and project management.

Community elected leaders and administrators rely on the Regional Superintendent for 'value added' advice and guidance.
