The Town of Smithers’ new Chief Administrative Officer says she’s passionate about small communities, especially those in the North.
Anne Yanciw, who grew up near Burns Lake, brings 17 years of experience in local government to the position, including stints in Calgary, Valemount, and Lions Bay.
Smithers mayor Taylor Bachrach says council is confident Yanciw will be an asset as the town moves forward with a very ambitious agenda.
Yanciw replaces former Smithers CAO Deborah Sargent who left her position to take on the role as City Manager of Campbell River.
Yanciw begins her new position in January.
