Ryerson University is a distinctly urban university. It is guided by a bold Academic Plan, an ambitious research agenda, and a Master Plan to revitalize the campus and surrounding neighbourhood and reshape the downtown core of Toronto. Ryerson has a mission to serve societal need and a long-standing commitment to engaging its community. It is the most applied-to university in Ontario relative to available spaces and its reputation with business and community leaders continues to rise. It is clearly a university on the move.

The Centre for Labour-Management Relations (CLMR), is located within the Ted Rogers School of Management, and is the only privately funded university-based research centre in North America. that is dedicated to work and employment, producing research and programs that result in greater productivity and profitability for organizations, increased income and job security for workers, and decreased inequality and injustice for society. CLMR began in the Fall of 2010 and since then has held over 90 events, sponsored over 50 research projects and worked with over 150 organizations.

CLMR is seeking a Chair of the Advisory Council to serve as a key advisor to the Centre. The initial appointment for the Chair is for a term of up to three years. While the Chair is expected to attend Council meetings (4-5 per year) and major events in person, the time commitment for this position is negotiable, with remuneration paid on a per diem basis.

CLMR is ideally looking for a Chair who has a solid understanding of Canadian Labour and Employment challenges and who is seeking an opportunity through this position, to leverage their passion and experience into making meaningful change to improving how work is experienced. This person has the ability to generate development opportunities and industry and labour relationships that will result in the sustained growth of the CLMR. As a member of CLMR’s Advisory Council, the Chair must be of the highest integrity and support CLMR’s mandate, vision and values. Candidates ideally would have been involved in the Canadian labour landscape and have experience with some or all of CLMR’s areas of focus.
