We're holding a series of youth engagement workshops and we want to hear your voice! Workshops will happen across the municipality for youth 13-24 to give input on the Municipal Youth Services Plan. Check out to sign up!

If you’re 16-24 and having trouble finding meaningful work you may be eligible for the Youth Live Program. We offer 24 weeks of paid job and life skill building in a supportive environment for youth with employment barriers.

Remember TimTV?

Much has changed in our district since I was first elected in 2008. It’s a larger district with new boundaries that encompass Larry Uteck, Starboard Drive, Royal Hemlocks, West Bedford and more. While the number of families I represent has changed over the past 12 years (and my hair has gone a little “fairer”), my commitment to the priorities we all share remains the same. Take a trip down memory lane and watch a collection of my TimTV episodes, a series created during the past municipal elections to help residents get to know me, my family, my supporters and the community I call home. 

Pay no mind, of course, to the dates at the end of the videos (they’re from elections past).
