Vice President Chemistry

CropLife Canada is the industry association representing Canadian manufacturers, developers and distributors of plant science innovations – pesticides and products of modern plant breeding.

Although many aspects of the plant science industry have evolved since CropLife Canada was first established in 1952, the main purpose remains the same – to advance the collective interests of the industry in Canada. 

Through pesticides and modern plant breeding, the plant science industry makes significant social, economic, and environmental contributions. Our industry’s primary focus is on providing tools to farmers, but we also develop products for use in a wide range of non-agricultural settings including urban green spaces, public health settings and transportation corridors.  We stand for:

  • Innovation through continuous research
  • Sustainability by providing benefits to people, the planet and the economy
  • Safety through protection of human health and the environment

CropLife Canada is located in Ottawa and is known for its progressive environment which provides opportunities for learning and growth while providing a team- and people-oriented culture. As a result of internal promotions, CropLife Canada requires a vice president of chemistry.

The role is essential to the success of CropLife Canada. As part of the senior management team, reporting to the president, the vice-president of chemistry is empowered to pursue policies and strategies that enhance the industry’s ability to operate. Significant areas of responsibility include: supporting and building consensus among members; working with provincial and federal governments, as well as a wide range of other stakeholders including academia and the international plant sciences community; and managing resources (staff, budgets, volunteers, and contractors). Additionally, this position will be responsible for collaborating with CropLife Canada colleagues focused on communications, advocacy, and other scientific lines.

Candidates for this role will  have a degree(s) ideally in agriculture, chemistry, biology, or environmental science but most importantly have a successful record of leadership in a complex environment related to the field of agriculture. Influencing and facilitation skills are paramount for success in this role as is the ability to communicate to a broad range of audiences in lay languages. Bilingualism is an asset.
