Program Director, Data Policy Coalition, Powered by Data

Montreal, QB, Toronto, ON, or Ottawa, ON | Apply by February 18, 2019

Powered by Data, a project on Tides Canada’s shared platform, has a mission is to maximize the availability and impact of data for public good, to help build a more equitable world. We pursue this mission through convening, strategy development, education, and capacity-building.

We are committed to helping build a data-informed social sector. We envision a future where data plays a key role in enabling evidence-based decision making, increasing the quality of social service delivery, and supporting efforts to advocate for equitable systems change. Over the past two years, administrative data sharing has become one of our key focus areas.

Powered by Data is convening a civil society coalition to design a policy agenda around administrative data-sharing and reuse for social impact. While these practices are gaining momentum around the world, Canada lacks a coordinated policy agenda to maximize their benefits while minimizing risks. Recognizing that policy development often excludes communities at the margins, this coalition aims to centre groups that carry the greatest privacy and security risks related to data sharing.

We are looking for a skilled and enthusiastic leader to serve as Program Director for this emerging policy coalition. This exciting new role will be responsible for weaving 40+ service providers, advocacy groups, and foundations into a functional coalition, supporting them to identify and pursue policy priorities, and securing resources to ensure the initiative’s ongoing success beyond 2019.
