Our Guiding Principle
We serve our community by creating an Amazing place to live, work and play.
The City is comprised of 5 functional areas, and multiple diverse departments ranging from Parks & Recreation to Community Support Services to Office of the CAO.
The City’s Human Resources Policies and Procedures Framework outlines that it is the responsibility of the City to attract and retain exemplary employees, support and develop these employees, and hold them accountable for maintaining acceptable standards of behaviour and achieving corporate outcomes.
In the interest of open and transparent governance, the City publishes information about compensation, pensions and benefits annually.
The City’s wages and salaries are approved by Council as part of the annual budget cycle and are administered by People Operations. Every two years the wage and salary rates are compared with a set of Council-approved municipalities to ensure we remain competitive and are able to attract and retain Amazing staff.
The City does not intend to lead the market, but strives for pay that is responsive to the prevailing market and economic conditions.
