Mayor Robb Noon

I was honoured to be appointed Mayor of Callander in March of 2020, after the sudden passing of Mayor Hec Lavigne.

Born and raised in Callander, I have been on Council for 16 years. I am pleased to continue to represent the constituents of this beautiful community, this time in the capacity of Mayor.

Together with Council, I will carry on with the planned projects, enhancements and promotion of our community, while maintaining fiscal responsibility. I believe in a strong family community that everyone can enjoy.

Callander, like other communities worldwide, face enormous challenges as a result of COVID-19. Once again, I want to thank you as a community for doing your part in slowing the spread of the pandemic.

The Municipality looks forward to continuing to work with you all to get through these challenging times and plan for recovery.

Councillor Linda Alkins

Hello, I am Linda Alkins and I have been a councillor since 2018. 

My family used to own and operate a tourist resort in Callander and I have resided here since 1967. 

Some may know me from the municipal office where I was employed for 10 years and am now happily retired.

It has been an interesting past 18 months for me. COVID 19 came into all our lives and changed how we exist on a day to day basis. Council has faced many challenges over the past few months and we have continued to guide our community through these difficult times. 

We all will be facing many new challenges as we work through the months to come and start to integrate back into our community and getting out supporting our local businesses. 

I strongly believe that Callander will remain the place we love and call home!

Councillor Irene Smit

Cheerful Hello! My name is Irene Smit and I was appointed to become a member of the Callander Council in April 2020.

To briefly tell you a little bit about myself; I have lived in Callander for 20 years and can think of no better place to call home, than right here in this beautiful friendly community.

After spending the same time as a realtor in this area I have had the good fortune of getting to meet many of the local home owners, and discovered first hand the sense of belonging and camaraderie that is found here.

The residents and shop owners alike are so welcoming, they make this a wonderful town to be proud to live and work in. 

I am proud to represent the wonderful friends I have made here in the beautiful landscape we call home in Callander.
