Canada’s Capital, with over 900,000 residents, the City of Ottawa is blessed with a mix of great urban neighbourhoods and dynamic suburban communities. Ottawa boasts one of Canada’s most highly educated and talented workforces and is home to one of the largest concentrations of hi-tech firms in the country. Visitors and residents alike thrive in this dynamic urban environment and can choose from an exciting array of museums, art galleries, theatres and cultural events, parks and recreation facilities, restaurants and shopping venues.

Ensuring the safety of OCTranspo’s public transit and light rail services is a critical mandate that calls for the visionary leadership and the expertise of a proven safety professional with knowledge of industry best practices and a talent for capacity building and fostering change and innovation. If you’re such a leader, consider joining the City of Ottawa as Chief Safety Officer (CSO) within the Transportation Services Department. With the successful launch of the City’s very new, modern and busy line and it’s second stage already under construction, this is a high-profile opportunity that will offer prospects for career growth while making noteworthy impact on Canadian transportation service excellence and standards.
