New employee orientation

By now you should have received your offer letter and a helpful information package for new employees. To complement that package, you will be invited to attend a half day orientation program in Human Resources designed to help you realize the full potential of your first months with the town. The program will give you a greater understanding of the town including:

  • Health and safety
  • Respectful Conduct policy
  • Violence in the workplace policy
  • Hands-on technology training
  • Benefits review and sign-up
  • Meeting your union representative (where applicable)

What to expect on your new employee orientation day

What time should I arrive on orientation day?

Please be at the Human Resources department at Town Hall at 8:45 a.m. on orientation day, unless otherwise noted in your offer letter.

What should I bring?

Please remember to bring all paperwork that was sent to you in your offer package. An HR Associate will collect this.

What about lunch?

Unless otherwise advised, you are welcome to bring your own lunch or purchase one from Acorn Grill, the on-site cafeteria.
