I always feel included and valued through my interactions and that my ideas are welcomed and appreciated.
Everyone from staff to management to executive are very encouraging and supportive of my overall well-being as an employee and as a person. Professionally speaking, I have never felt that my opinion isn’t considered or taken seriously, and I have many friends who are jealous that I enjoy my job so much.

"The benefits of working for the Town of Collingwood is I get to work, live, play in the town I grew up in. I never work in the same place and get to meet different people everyday. I work for and around my neighbours, citizens of the town I live in. I try and do my best to help the taxpayers and people that live in town and surrounding areas with any sort of issue they may have. I try and protect citizens, neighbours and families of the town with healthy drinking water. My career is working for the Town of Collingwood and the people of the Town of the Collingwood to protect them in anyway possible. Being born and raised here is a great benefit to my family being so close to work."
