The Director is also responsible for ensuring that all recreational buildings, facilities, parks, trails and open spaces are properly maintained and suitable for safe and proper use by the public.

- Program Development and Support
- Facilities Management
- Budget Preparation and Financial Controls
- Coordination of Special Events
- Other Duties and Responsibilities
The Director of Recreation and Community Services must have completed a degree or diploma in physical education or community recreation. A business degree or degree or diploma in facilities management or a combination of practical experience and academic background in either of these areas would be an obvious asset. Specific skills and experience in the area of community recreation program development are essential, and knowledge and skills in facilities management and event planning are tremendous assets. This individual must have a valid driver’s license and, due to the nature of the work, must possess excellent inter-personal skills and good verbal and written communication skills. Preference will be given to candidates with the most suitable combination of academic qualifications and pertinent experience in the areas of responsibility outlined above.
