2021 Wetaskiwin Regional Trustee Election: Get to know your candidates



Determine if you live within this School Division Boundary by using this online map.

If you live outside of these boundaries, visit our Trustee Elections 2021 main page to access information for the other school jurisdiction areas in Alberta that we have prepared guides for.


Use the map on this page to find the ward in which you live. Wards 1, 2,3 and 4 will elect one trustees, and the City of Wetaskiwin will elect three trustees each to become the school board trustee for that area for the next four years. 

Note: Our team has worked hard to gather as much publicly available information as we could find so far. If you know of additional candidate information not yet listed, or notice any errors, please email [email protected]

All candidates listed in the Voter Guides received our PCE Questionnaire. Those who submitted their response prior to the deadline have their answers included in this resource.  We appreciate each candidate who responded honestly, regardless of whether or not their stance is aligned with PCE's particular advocacy positions.

This year offers a tremendous opportunity to impact Alberta’s education landscape!  

As explained on PCE’s 2021 Trustee Election main page, this year offers a tremendous opportunity to impact Alberta’s education landscape!

Beyond just casting an informed vote, there are many other important ways you can become more involved and engaged in this October 18th election.



Email or call your candidates with your questions and concerns. 

 *NOTE: We provided a clear deadline for candidates to complete the PCE questionnaire and will not be accepting any further responses to publish on our site. If your candidate missed the deadline and wishes to respond, encourage them to publish a response to the PCE questionnaire on their own personal website/Facebook page. Links to candidate website/Facebook pages are included in our Voter Guide, if available.



As you learn about the candidates, you may want to lend extra support to one of them, even if they are not in the same specific area or ward as where you live. If so, we encourage you to send them an email and let them know you want to help them with their campaign. Even 1-2 hours of your time before the Oct 18th election can make a tremendous difference as to which candidates will sit on the future board of trustees in your district.

You can also strengthen their campaign with financial donations.  Even $20-$50 makes a difference! Look on their website for a DONATE button or send them an email to offer your financial support. *Note: PCE has not, and will not, provide any financial support to any electoral campaign or candidate.



Send out the link to our 2021 School Board Trustee Election main page to your friends and tell them the importance of getting to know the school trustee candidates for their local area and voting wisely on October 18th!
