We are The Anglican Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, serving and sustaining 90+ parishes and over 200 congregations as Christ-centered, mission-minded communities. Founded in 1787, we are a faithful, innovative, courageous, and compassionate organization. We value diversity, integrity, grace, generosity, and transparency. We care deeply about our work, our people, our communities, and our world. We host a positive and accessible work environment. We offer an exceptional benefits and pension package with the possibility of a hybrid working environment.

Reporting on a regular basis to the Executive Director, the Controller is ultimately accountable to the Bishop and to the Synod.

Our Diocese is on the cusp of transformational change. We are being called to greater diversity of membership, wider participation in ministry and leadership, better stewardship of the environment, and a stronger resolve in challenging attitudes and structures that cause injustice.
