The City of Wetaskiwin
Do you want to be a part of a different kind of local government? We are a diverse, collaborative, and eager team that knows it can be done better and we are doing it! We started by listening to our citizens to get their vision of our community in 50 years and the creativity flowed from there. [What if Wetaskiwin] is a collaborative and inclusive place where we can examine our current state; share ideas for making things better; and turn these ideas into actionable plans. This is the heart of the City's 50-Year Community Vision, and it belongs to all Wetaskiwinites.
Council’s Strategic Plan has us exploring ways to sustain a strong economy, stay safe, focus on community, and the environment, while the City’s Corporate Business Plan prioritizes a people first philosophy. Our values are Trust, Resourcefulness, and Integrity. We cultivate well-being, through our team’s dedication to building positive, trusting, and fulfilling relationships, and we serve the community by partnering in capacity building to cultivate positive relationships which enhance the overall wellbeing of our community.
Located only 35 minutes south of Edmonton and 55 minutes north of Red Deer, the City of Wetaskiwin provides all the amenities and quality of life of an urban-rural center.
