Proposed Human Resources 2020 budget


The City has been experiencing a high number of recruitment/selection activities, largely due to a number of retirements. The following chart illustrates HR's recruitment activities. The higher trend for permanent positions is mostly due to age demographics and will continue as long-term, experienced employees reach the age of retirement. The high number of temporary postings is a result of the nature of the municipal workforce and seasonal positions. Such high activity requires a significant commitment of time and attention from the Human Resources Division and hiring departments.
