The People and Culture division (formerly Human Resources) provides various human resources programs and services to the Corporation. This includes recruitment and selection services, group health benefits and OMERS administration, health a safety advisory services, disability management, labour relations, service recognition programs and professional training and development.


The 2023 requested level of funding maintains the 2022 level of service for corporate expenses. A portion of People and Culture (P&C) expenses is charged out to other departments whose operating costs can be partially recovered from other funding sources.

In 2023 the P&C division looks forward to continuously improving our current programs and services, with a focus on strengthening employee support, engagement and wellness.

Performance data

The City has experienced a slight increase in the number of recruitment and selection activities in 2021/2022, largely due to retirements when compared to 2020 and regular seasonal recruitment as the City returns to pre-pandemic service levels.
