Chief Administrative Officer

Municipality of the District of Shelburne, located on Nova Scotia's beautiful South Shore, is home to the world's best lobster and seafood, unspoiled white sand beaches, quality educational facilities which attract numerous international students each year, year-round family oriented recreational facilities and programs, Black Loyalist Heritage Centre, an aggressive Fibre-to-the-Home broadband program, a new collaborative health care clinic, and a new multi-government administration building in the design phase.

We are seeking an experienced municipal or business leader with exceptional leadership, administration, and financial skills to lead our organization in our next phase of development. While the Municipality has a population of approximately 4,300, it provides services close to 7,000 people, including two adjacent towns. The successful candidate will understand the need to maximize opportunities and efficiency, including significant collaboration with the other three levels of government. 

If you feel you have the passion and background that we need and you want a rural lifestyle with urban services, then send us your resume so we can talk about your interest. Please send your resume to Warden Penny Smith at
