Office of Innovation and Collaboration
The Office of Innovation and Collaboration (OIC) department, created in 2016 looks after a number of files for the municipality including: economic development, planning, human resources and communications.
The OIC manages the human resources function for the Corporation including recruitment, compensation policies and practices, payroll, administration of collective agreements, educational and training programs, employee benefits, and supports a safe and healthy workplace through safety and wellness programs.
The OIC also includes our Community Planners (one Senior Planner position and one Community Planner position). Planning staff advises both the public and Council on bylaws relating to subdivision, zoning and building in order to manage changes in land use that is consistent with the Official Community Plan (OCP) and helps guide the public through related development approval processes.
The OIC also provides the public and the media with information on City issues and services through the Corporate Communications Office.
