Commissioner of Community Services departing for position in Red Deer, Alberta


Peterborough, ON – The Commissioner of Community Services, Allan Seabrooke, is resigning from his position with the City of Peterborough to move to Red Deer, Alberta, where he has accepted the position of City Manager.

“It has been an honour to serve residents and community organizations as the City’s Chief Administrative Officer and as a Commissioner over the last four years,” Seabrooke said. “I have enjoyed working with Council and the talented employees of our City. It’s a time I will always cherish. Having worked my entire career in Ontario, the opportunity to experience life in Western Canada, working with a growing and progressive community like Red Deer, was appealing.”

Seabrooke will start his new job in Red Deer, Alberta on May 13, 2019.

Before working for the City of Peterborough, Seabrooke held positions with the City of Waterloo, Otonabee Region Conservation Authority, the City of Markham, the Town of Aurora, the City of Mississauga, the City of Elliot Lake, and the Ministry of Natural Resources.

In 2018, when the City’s previous Commissioner of Community Services retired, Seabrooke led a restructuring of the senior management at the City. He moved into the Community Services Commissioner position – a position that he held when he worked for the City of Waterloo – and the Director of Corporate Services, Sandra Clancy, became the Chief Administrative Officer. The number of senior managers was reduced to four from six with the reorganization of the City’s departments.

“Allan has been a valued contributor to the City. We’ll miss his voice as part of our senior management team; but we wish him well as he continues his career in Western Canada,” Chief Administrative Officer Sandra Clancy said.

In the interim, Clancy will serve as acting Commissioner of Community Services in addition to her duties as Chief Administrative Officer.
