Salary range: $123,000–$144,600 (full-time)
Per diem: $615–$720 (part-time)

The Canadian Transportation Accident Investigation and Safety Board (the Board), commonly known as the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, is an independent federal agency established by the Canadian Transportation Accident Investigation and Safety Board Act that reports to Parliament through the Leader of the Government in the House of Commons. The Board performs a key role within the Canadian transportation system by independently investigating accidents in the air, marine, rail and pipeline modes of transportation for the sole purpose of advancing transportation safety. The Board, consisting of not more than five members, including the Chairperson, makes findings as to causes and contributing factors, identifies safety deficiencies, makes recommendations, and reports publicly on its investigations and findings.

Board members ensure that investigation reports on transportation accidents reflect objective, competent analysis of safety failures in the national transportation system and make recommendations to address deficiencies.

The ideal candidate would possess a degree from a recognized university in a relevant field of study, or an acceptable combination of education, job-related training and/or experience.

The ideal candidate would have experience working in the federally regulated transportation industry (i.e. air, marine, rail or pipeline transportation) or in the area of human performance and system safety. He or she would also have demonstrated experience in the interpretation and application of legislation in the context of an independent investigative, inquiry or review role, in addition to experience in policy development in the context of transportation investigations. Experience in developing, maintaining, and managing successful working relationships is desired. The candidate would have proven decision-making experience, ideally with respect to complex technical issues.

The ideal candidate would have a good understanding of the mandate, legislation, and regulations governing the Board, including the independence of the Board. Knowledge and understanding of at least one of the modes of transportation under federal jurisdiction are sought. Furthermore, this candidate would have knowledge and understanding of emerging trends and current safety issues in air, marine, rail and pipeline transportation. He or she would also be knowledgeable of human performance and system safety concepts. Broad understanding of investigative practices and processes and knowledge of the conduct of independent investigations and inquiries, as well as the principles of administrative law and natural justice, are desired.

The ideal candidate would have the ability to interpret and apply relevant statutes, regulations, policies and other documents in a decision-making environment. In addition, he or she would be able to analyze complex technical information and synthesize key information. Strong leadership skills and the ability to think conceptually and strategically are sought. The candidate would have the ability to work efficiently and effectively with staff and with a collegial board (i.e. in a shared authority model). Superior oral and written communications skills, with the ability to write clear and concise reports, analyses and recommendations, are also desired.

Along with superior interpersonal skills, the ideal candidate would adhere to high ethical standards and have sound judgment and integrity. Moreover, he or she would be flexible, adaptable, and impartial and demonstrate tact and discretion.

Proficiency in both official languages would be preferred.

If the successful candidate is appointed on a full-time basis, he or she must reside in or be willing to relocate to the National Capital Region or to a location within a reasonable commuting distance. The chosen candidate must also be willing to travel frequently throughout Canada.

Members shall not, directly or indirectly, as owner, shareholder, director, officer, partner or otherwise, (a) be engaged in a transportation undertaking or business, or (b) have an interest in a transportation undertaking or business or an interest in the manufacture or distribution of transportation plant or equipment, except where the distribution is merely incidental to the general merchandising of goods. (Transportation in this section means air, marine, rail or pipeline transportation.)

The Government is committed to ensuring that its appointments are representative of Canada’s regions and official languages, as well as of women, Aboriginal peoples, disabled persons and visible minorities.

The selected candidate must comply with the Ethical and Political Activity Guidelines for Public Office Holders. The Guidelines are available on the Governor in Council Appointments Web site, under “Reference Material,” at www.appointments-nominations.gc.ca/index.asp?lang=eng.
