The Atlantic Salmon Federation (Canada) is a founding partner of the Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF), an international conservation organization with headquarters in St. Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada. ASF’s core purpose is to conserve, protect and restore wild Atlantic salmon and the ecosystems on which their well-being and survival depend. The organization was founded in 1948 and has, over the last 70-years, worked on a regional, national, and international level to further its conservation mission.
While ASF is focused on conserving and restoring wild Atlantic salmon and their habitats, the organization believes that freshwater and marine ecosystems, and the species they support, are interconnected and their survival interdependent. ASF advocates for the development and implementation of sound conservation laws and policies to protect wild Atlantic salmon and their habitats. ASF’s scientists lead ground breaking research on wild Atlantic salmon and partner with governments, First Nations, universities, and NGO researchers in pursuit of shared research objectives.
ASF’s positions and policies are grounded in the most up to date peer reviewed science, which provides the basis for all of its advocacy activities. ASF also leads cutting-edge habitat restoration projects and public awareness, communications, education, and community outreach programs to help further its wild Atlantic salmon conservation mission.
The Chief Operating Officer (COO) will report to and take direction from the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The ideal candidate is bilingual, possesses an understanding of wild Atlantic salmon, and has experience leading hard working dedicated teams of conservation professionals and volunteers. He or she is an experienced and passionate conservation leader with a proven track record in successfully implementing organizational development, with intellectual breadth, communication skills, and strong experience with non-government and government agencies, as well as the private business sector. She or he is comfortable operating in a regional, national, or international environment, and works creatively to develop and manage plans and strategies for ASF, employing vision, strong leadership and sound management to further the organization’s mission, impact, and effectiveness.
The position offers a competitive compensation package including a retirement and benefits program.
