Casual and Temporary Employment

Temporary and casual employees are often required to replace permanent employees who are on holidays, sick leave, maternity leave, etc.

During the summer months, we also need additional employees to help repair and maintain roads and sidewalks, parks and trails and install underground utilities.

The summer is also a busy time for our Parks and Recreation Department providing additional recreational activities for youth.  These seasonal positions will be posted in the Spring.
