This is a place where you will find that the words authentic and community perfectly describe what people are discovering to be the quiet lure of a town rich in economic diversity and history, combined with an unassuming family culture of compassion, volunteerism, and a respect for community identity.  Here you will find the word adventure redefined from your first float down the world acclaimed Columbia River wetlands, to your first fall line at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

You need to be able to thrive in a fast-paced environment, and take on the many challenges and flexibilities required in a small but very dynamic community with industrial and tourism roots. You’ll find help in your departmental team under your supervision which includes a professionally designated deputy overseeing four clerks whose responsibilities include general services, accounts, payroll, taxes, and utilities while you also directly oversee two individuals for our information technology and GIS system needs.
 
We need you to be at least an undergraduate in the financial field with a professional accounting designation and at least 5 years of experience in a local government setting, 3 in a managerial capacity.  You must have experience using local government oriented accounting software, preferably AMAIS, and a good knowledge of the responsibilities of local government under applicable British Columbia legislation.  Duties, accountabilities and qualifications are described in detail in the job description found below
