Municipal Internship Program in Finance Officer Stream

 

Participants in the Municipal Internship Program at Lesser Slave River have a unique opportunity to begin their professional careers in a role that is unlike many 'first' jobs after completing their education. This program is an opportunity to gain first-hand, real-life, practical experience and training in municipal government. It’s designed to encourage new or recent post-secondary graduates to consider a career in Municipal Finance/Accounting.

 

Leader Cancels Subscription Service

 

Due to changing conditions in the newspaper industry, it is no longer feasible for the Lakeside Leader to support mail-out subscriptions of its weekly newspaper.

The MD is working with the Lakeside Leader to establish community pick-up points for the paper so that residents can continue to receive the paper. Once these pick-up points have been established, the MD will inform residents via the municipal website and social media channels.

The MD will continue to support this valuable regional resource by way of advertising dollars, and is hopeful that the planned efficiencies will help the Leader adapt and thrive.
