Continued Education in Municipal Affairs allows me to maintain and update my strong foundations to create plans as a trusted advisor in planning and implementing changes for the Town of LaSalle.

  • AMO –  Annually
    Attending AMO (Association of Municipalities of Ontario) conference allows me to network and share Best Practices with other Ontario municipalities and meet representatives from different ministries and public corporations. i.e. Canada Post (recognize LaSalle as its own community)

    PRO Parks and Recreation Ontario is another networking, learning experience to share successes and ideas to serve multiple generations with age friendly facilities, programmes and amenities to create an even better LaSalle

    Learning how other municipalities are dealing with fire issues, including PSTD, equipment options, visited the fire school at the Toronto Airport and had a practical lesson, wearing bunker gear (75 pounds) and how to put out some fire types and use “jaws of life”

  • Community Living Ontario
    Community Living Ontario allows me to meet Ministry Representatives and other Community Living organizations so that I am up-to-date with changes, and learn how to help residents with developmental and/or physical challenges
  • Water/Wastewater Management
    Learning about Water/Wastewater Management so we don’t end up with another Walkerton-type concern and the Drainage Act so I have a better understanding of how it impacts our Municipality

    How can we make our events even better, networking with other organizers for different ideas, meeting vendors who might help our festivals, keeping up with safety rules
