CEEA is the independent advocate for energy efficiency in Canada. We work with governments and stakeholders to ensure energy efficiency is a priority for all sectors of the economy.

We are an effective voice and resource for policy makers, businesses, builders, consumers, energy companies and environmental groups.

CEEA Is Hiring

Headquartered in Ottawa, the Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance (CEEA) is the national body advocating for energy efficiency across the country. This independent, not-for-profit organization was originally established over 20 years ago to serve and unite the many stakeholders in the national and global shift towards a greener, more energy efficient economy and society. With increasing national focus on economic and environmental goals that greater efficiency supports, CEEA plays a critical and expanding role in supporting government, policy makers, businesses, consumers, energy companies and environmental groups in advancing the energy efficiency agenda.

Representing an industry and issue in the limelight, further strengthened by Canada’s strong commitment to environmental stewardship and to the Paris agreement, CEEA is moving into an exciting new phase and is seeking a dynamic Chief Executive Officer to drive growth and expand on its existing and well-established brand. Reporting to the governing board, the CEO will be responsible for growing CEEA’s membership, presence and impact in the market and for continuing to generate secure and sustainable funding. Responsible for an annual budget of nearly a million dollars, the CEO will also build and mentor a team that supports CEEA’s strategic agenda.

As an ideal candidate, you are passionate, entrepreneurial, and business-minded with proven success in both building and growing organizations. You are a champion for energy efficiency and know how to consistently demonstrate value to diverse stakeholder groups. Your credibility is supported by your strong financial acumen and relationship building skills. You lead by example to set the tone and culture of the organization and set key strategic objectives in conjunction with the Board and other stakeholders within the context of Canada’s economic goals and climate change commitments. Key components of success include ensuring a strong and sustainable bond with current and future membership, consistently validating CEEA’s impact through active networking and results-based delivery, as well as achieving energy efficiency policy wins across the country.

Flexible, diplomatic, and dynamic, you thrive in “start-up” situations and you have relevant experience in a senior leadership role. You are a strong communicator and you have established relationships with key stakeholders including the federal and provincial governments, academia, industry, non-governmental organizations and charitable foundations. Your experience in executing change management, fundraising, policy, standards, and advocacy is a fundamental pillar of success. Fluency in both national languages is an asset.
