EPCOR's Community ​Liaison Groups

​We are looking for local people to be part of our Community L​iaison Groups for the 2022-2024 term. 

 ​What is a Co​​mmunity Liaison Group?

A Community Liaison Group is:

  • A forum for community members to come together and learn about EPCOR's water and wastewater service delivery, operational issues, and programs.
  • A way for community members to discuss the community's concerns and aspirations.
  • On a project-specific basis, a way to provide feedback that will be directly reflected in the alternatives developed.​

 Where are​ EPCOR's Community Liaison Groups?

EPCOR is currently recruiting community members in the communities surrounding the following facilities:

  • Gold Bar wastewater treatment plant
  • French Creek, B.C., water treatment plant
  • Kananaskis water and wastewater treatment plant
  • Edmonton-wide (discussions will be related to EPCOR's water operations, projects and programs that have city-wide impacts in Edmonton).

 What are we lookin​​g for?

We are looking for 10-15 members of the community to be part of each group. This will be made up of approximately equal numbers of representatives from community leagues, non-government organizations, and members of the community at large.

We're looking for people who are:

  • From diverse backgrounds, circumstances and experiences
  • Passionate about their local community​

​​​ What does the role involve?

  • Engaging as an individual or on behalf of a wider group to provide your insight, views and ideas as a member of the local community.
  • Listening to others in the group and respectfully debating ideas and views.
  • Helping to share relevant information with the wider community, when needed.​

​​​ What is the time commitment?

  • We anticipate the initial time commitment to be 3 hours over the first month. The first month will involve a facility tour  (if COVID restrictions allow) and an orientation session.
  • After your orientation in the first month, we plan to have 2 or 3 meetings per year, with the estimated time commitment around 3-5 hours per meeting. This will include attending meetings, reviewing information and providing feedback and ideas.
  • We ask members to sit on the committee for two years.​

​​​ What's in it for you?

  • Being part of an interesting and important process
  • Learning about the process of EPCOR's water and waste water treatment and facilities
  • Making sure that the aspirations and concerns of local people like yourself are properly considered
  • Developing skills in teamwork, communication and working with others​
