Canadian Medical Association - Director, Political Engagement


The Canadian Medical Association (CMA), founded in 1867, is the national voice of Canada’s physicians. Our mission consists in “Helping physicians care for patients.”

Director, Political Engagement

Based in Ottawa, and reporting to the Vice-President of Patient & Public Engagement, you will oversee and manage the refinement and execution of a federal/regional Political Engagement strategy. Along with providing strategic advice to the VP and other CMA leaders in order to advance the positions of the CMA with elected and non-elected decision-makers, you will ensure the alignment of key activities against departmental and corporate objectives.

This is a professionally rewarding and challenging mandate for a fluently bilingual leader who is a strategic thinker and combines a university degree with 6 to 9 years of relevant experience, including a significant background in grassroots politics, as well as media relations or communications. Your political insight, sound judgment and strengths in people management will prove invaluable in this key role.

This is your opportunity to contribute to a corporate culture based on teamwork and service excellence. For more information, visit the website below. Please reply, in confidence, to Human Resources, Canadian Medical Association, at
