Learning, public engagement, and communication are in TVO’s DNA – they have the power to change lives and change the world. And they have never been more important to the health and well-being of individuals and society.    

For 50 years, TVO has sparked for Ontarians powerful, life-changing moments of learning, big and small.

This is a unique opportunity to drive innovation, empower people, and engage learners of all ages, wherever they are, as TVO’s next Chief Executive Officer.

TVO is Ontario's English-language public educational media organization and a trusted source of interactive educational content that informs, inspires, and stimulates curiosity and thought. TVO supports Ontario’s transformation of learning inside and outside the classroom through digital technology, and it supports citizen engagement through in-depth current affairs journalism from an Ontario perspective.

As a media entity, the landscape in which TVO operates is shifting rapidly. You will lead a digital transformation that will take TVO into its next half century with an emphasis on new media and development of self-generated revenue streams.          

As a public agency and a registered charity, TVO’s work is made possible through the prudent stewardship of public funds and the generous support of tens of thousands of donors.

As CEO, reporting to a Board of Directors, you will develop and champion a bold and aspirational vision that positions TVO in a rapidly shifting and demanding global environment. You will promote world-class learning and ensure TVO stays well-ahead of emerging trends in journalism, education, digital media, and society.

As the ideal candidate, you are a creative, entrepreneurial, and skilled change leader. Collegial with the highest ethical standards and integrity, you are recognized for your strategic foresight and your ability to develop and execute plans and to engage and motivate dynamic and diverse teams. Your business and financial acumen and your experience in product development and/or donor stewardship will be highly valued in generating new revenue streams. You have excellent interpersonal and communications skills, and can build and manage meaningful partnerships and relationships with your Board, government and elected officials, the public, educational and business partners, donors, etc.
