A champion of best practices in policy development and planning for the preservation of heritage properties, adept at balancing political, community and other stakeholder interests to meet goals, you welcome this opportunity to make your mark with the City of Torontos City Planning Division. 

Reporting to the Senior Manager, Heritage Preservation Services, you will manage staff and resources in the delivery of divisional development review and policy-related projects, in accordance with provincial and municipal legislation, and lead the development of policy for heritage planning and conservation purposes. As Program Manager, you will also be involved in managing complex studies, heritage planning initiatives and related policy within the Heritage Preservation Services Unit. 

With a focus on integrating the conservation of heritage resources with the physical aspects of new development to meet City-wide and local goals, youll oversee the review and evaluation of development applications through the Official Plan Amendment, Rezoning Site Plan Control and Committee of Adjustment processes as well as stand-alone heritage permits. In so doing, your goal will be to ensure conformity with the Planning Act, the Ontario Heritage Act, and Council-adopted Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in accordance with Council-directed and legislated timeframes with an emphasis on achieving Council priorities. 

Another key aspect of your mission in this key role will be managing staff in securing, through the development review process, studies and legal agreements that bind heritage property owners and/or Council to ensure the conservation of heritage resources, including Designation By-laws, Heritage Easement Agreements, Heritage Impact Assessments, Conservation Plans and Letters of Credit. 

A persuasive communicator with strong presentation skills, you will represent the Unit and City heritage planning interests before the Toronto Preservation Board, Community Councils, other standing committees, advisory committees and administrative tribunals such as the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), the Conservation Review Board (CRB) and the Property Standards Review Board. This role will see you interpreting legislation (Ontario Heritage Act, Planning Act, and Building Code Act) and making decisions on its application, as well as recommending legislative amendments to the Province and related bodies. You will also be called upon to interpret policies and legislation, and provide strategic advice to standing and advisory committees and Council on protecting the Citys heritage resources. 

This mandate calls for a recognized professional with extensive experience leading the development and implementation of heritage planning policies, strategies and solutions, providing strategic advice in the conservation of heritage resources and properties, and leading multiple, complex projects demanding a high level of critical judgment and analytical thinking. Your expertise in this specialized field is well supported by a post-secondary education in planning, architecture or a job-related professional discipline, or an equivalent educational and work background making you eligible to obtain professional membership in the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals (CAHP). 

An innovative, outcome-oriented leader, you have successfully managed and motivated staff through such means as conducting performance reviews, appraisals and plans, while ensuring high standards of organizational performance.
