Nova Scotia


Director of Finance

The 2020 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) will be held over 8 days in Halifax in July 2020. During this time the city will welcome approximately 5,000 athletes participating in 16 sports. The first NAIG was held in 1990 and games have been staged since then on seven occasions across North America with the vision of improving quality of life for Indigenous peoples by supporting self-determined sports and cultural activities. The Games will provide Nova Scotia an opportunity to open its doors and unite individuals and communities across North America through sport, while celebrating Mi’kmaq culture and heritage. During the 2020 NAIG, Indigenous and non-Indigenous people, athletes, and spectators will gather as one community to honour, celebrate, compete, dance, learn, and play.

Reporting to the CEO, the Director of Finance will be responsible for the management of accounting, finance, and human resources, exercising administrative judgement and assuming responsibility for decisions within the confines of approved operating plans and budgets. The Director of Finance will oversee and manage all financial aspects of the Games including developing financial policies and procedures, facilitate human resources processing, budgeting, analysis and forecasting.
