Job Posting CPP Executive Director

Dear Industry Friends and Colleagues;

On behalf of the CPP Executive Director Recruitment Sub-Committee

As many of you may be aware, John Freeborn, the long-standing Executive Director of the Canadian Picture Pioneers (CPP), announced earlier in the year of his intention to retire this coming winter. John has served in this role for 16 years and has been the heart and soul of the CPP, demonstrating incredible dedication to the support and well-being of our industry members across Canada. So much dedication, in fact, that he is being honoured as the Pioneer of the Year at the CPP’s upcoming Awards Dinner on November 10, 2022. John’s departure ushers in a new era for us, and a sub-committee of the CPP’s Board of Directors has been formed to start the search for a new Executive Director.

Below please find the link to the job posting, which outlines position details as well as information on the application process for your review and reading pleasure. For the initial search, the sub-committee is only considering applicants with current or past experience within our industry. If a suitable candidate cannot be found within our industry circle, we will broaden our search at a later time.

Please share this email with any colleagues, friends or acquaintances that you think may be interested in pursuing this terrific opportunity. We are anticipating a lot of interest and are very excited about getting the recruitment process underway! Should you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact any member of the below sub-committee at
