Senior Legal Counsel
(5+ Years of Commercial Real Estate Experience)

For over 50 years, Extendicare’s qualified and experienced staff has been helping people live better through a commitment to quality care and service that includes skilled nursing care, home health care, retirement living, and contract and consulting services.  It is proud to be at the forefront of senior care across Canada and work closely with government, community agencies, researchers, and its care partners, including families, to address needs, close gaps, solve problems and advance best practices.

Its vision is to be the best senior care and services company in Canada, and its mission is ever more important during the ongoing pandemic.  As it works to achieve this vision, Extendicare looks to its legal department for legal and operational/business support by working closely with all the business groups and corporate functions within the organization.  It is now looking to add two more lawyers to its team.

Extendicare is seeking a lawyer with at least 5 years of commercial real estate experience gained at a major firm or corporation.  Any corporate / commercial experience will be seen as an asset.  You will be involved in real property acquisitions and divestitures and related financings, development and construction of properties and joint ventures, as well as leasing arrangements.  The ability to run your own files independently is essential.  Although the focus will be on real estate matters, you will also advise on general corporate and commercial matters.

This position will report to the SVP, Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary, and be based in the Company’s head office in Markham (Steeles Ave./Hwy. 404).  In addition to the legal practice experience, the ideal candidates must possess excellent communication and analytical skills and strong business acumen.

This is a great opportunity to join an organization that is considered one of the leaders in the industry, in a time in which health care for seniors is of even greater importance.  The Company is able to offer a competitive compensation package and challenging work in a caring environment, with potential career growth opportunities.  If you are interested in this opportunity, please forward your cover letter and resume to Lorene Nagata or Lesa Ong at NagataConnex Executive Legal Search, or contact us for a confidential discussion.
