Regulatory Counsel

(5+ Years’ Experience) (Ottawa or Toronto)

Xplore Inc. (“Xplore”) is Canada’s fibre and 5G broadband company for rural living.  Founded in Woodstock, New Brunswick, Xplore has become one of the country’s largest facilities-based telecommunications providers for residential and business customers.  Xplore is committed to the relentless pursuit of an improved broadband experience for Canadians, building a world-class fibre optic and 5G wireless network to enable innovative broadband services for better every day rural living, for today and future generations.

Xplore is seeking a Regulatory Counsel to join its growing team.  Reporting to the Vice President, Legal, you will play an integral role on the legal team, preparing CRTC and ISED applications and submissions relating to wireless and satellite telecommunications, monitoring and advising on policies, proceedings and legislative developments, and interacting with various regulatory bodies.  The Regulatory Counsel will also support various business groups including the Network, Care, Marketing, and Operations teams on a broad range of issues including advertising, privacy, litigation, and general commercial law.  Although Xplore’s corporate head office is in Markham, Ontario, this position would ideally be based in Ottawa and working fully remotely, or if in Toronto, on a hybrid work arrangement.

The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 5 years of regulatory experience gained at a major firm or corporation.  Any technology or telecommunications regulatory experience is preferred.  Excellent drafting skills plus an ability to think logically and to navigate operational challenges will be a must.  You must be confident, assertive and persuasive as you will be representing the organization in a number of capacities.  The ability to work independently, and also to build relationships with stakeholders, listen to their concerns, and formulate creative solutions will be critical to success in this role.  Although not a requirement, French language proficiency would be an asset.

This is an exceptional opportunity with a growing, exciting, private Canadian company as it continues to expand.  The environment is dynamic and professional, and the culture is energetic and friendly.  It offers an attractive compensation package, diverse work and growth opportunities.  If you are interested in applying for this opportunity, please forward your cover letter and resume to Lorene Nagata or Lesa Ong of NagataCONNEX Executive Legal Search.
