City Manager Janice Baker Recognized by Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators

Jun 20, 2012

At today's meeting of Council, Janice Baker, city manager and chief administrative officer (CAO) for the City of Mississauga was presented with a long service award pin by Ron Shaw, president of the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators (CAMA) for her 21 years of dedication to public service and municipal management.

This is the first year for the CAMA Long Service Recognition Awards. The award pin presented is based on the number of years of full-time, paid employment in municipal government in a management capacity (as a chief administrative officer or reporting directly to a chief administrative officer).

"This long service recognition is an opportunity to reflect on achievements and future challenges," said Janice Baker, city manager and CAO. "We have many successes to build on such as the Mississauga Celebration Square and exciting projects moving forward including the Hurontario-Main Light Rail Transit Project. I look forward to the years ahead."

Baker became City Manager and CAO of the City of Mississauga in January 2005 after serving as the acting city manager since February, 2004. As city manager, Janice works with a Leadership Team of four commissioners. She joined the City of Mississauga in May 1999, as commissioner of Corporate Services and treasurer.

Baker has municipal government and fiscal administration experience, serving as director of Finance and City treasurer for the City of St. John's, Newfoundland and commissioner of Corporate Services and then commissioner of Public Works for the City of Oshawa, Ontario. Baker also holds the FCA designation from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario (ICAO).
