All candidates are contacted following the conclusion of the recruitment process. 

What if I am not the successful applicant?

Strathcona County appreciates the interest of all applicants. Following the December 12, 2017 meeting of Council, applicants will be notified with respect to the status of their application. If you were not selected for an appointment, please note that all applications received will be kept until the start of the next recruitment period and will be considered by Council throughout the ensuing year if vacancies arise. 

When will Council select members?
