Job Description

RECO was established in 1997 as a Delegated Administrative Authority under the Safety and Consumer Statutes Administration Act, as a result of the mutual desire of the government and the real estate industry to enhance professionalism, increase consumer protection and provide an effective, efficient and responsive regulatory framework. The Ministry of Government and Consumer Services continues to be responsible for the Real Estate and Business Brokers Act, 2002 and associated regulations, as well as the general oversight of RECO.

The CEO provides strategic leadership to the Registrar, Vice President Corporate Services and a team of approximately 135 staff. The CEO has overall responsibility for the leadership of the operational, administrative, financial, long-term strategic planning and oversight of the board-directed initiatives and employee leadership, motivation and morale.

You are a proven, confident, proactive and engaging leader and a strategic thinker, with strong team building skills, that has demonstrated success as a proven senior leader within the private or public sector. Your exceptional interpersonal skills have earned you a reputation for building a trustworthy, positive, accountable work culture and for developing and inspiring strong management teams and staff. A model example of exceptional commitment to organizational leadership, you set the standards for a team and the board that strives to provide the highest quality of services to RECO stakeholders.


Having completed your University Education, preferably in Business or a related field, you also have a minimum of 10 years of a combination of public and private sector experience working as a CEO, COO or an Executive Director. Ideally, you would also have experience in or exposure to a regulatory sector. Prior experience reporting to a Board of Directors would be considered an asset.
