South Bruce Peninsula Mayor Janice Jackson elected as Bruce County Warden


Bruce County, Ontario: At the Thursday, December 3, 2020 Council Meeting, Bruce County Council elected Janice Jackson, Mayor of South Bruce Peninsula, as Bruce County’s Warden for the 2021 term.

This is Mayor Janice Jackson’s first term as County Warden. Jackson was elected to municipal council in South Bruce Peninsula in 2010 and was then elected as Mayor in 2014 and 2018.

“It is truly an honour to have my Council colleagues instill me with the responsibilities of Warden for the upcoming year,” said Warden Janice Jackson, “As we work together to respond to the challenges of these unprecedented times, we strive to continue to keep our region safe, protect our most vulnerable, and help our economy recover. I see a wide-open slate of opportunities ahead, with 2021 being an exciting, milestone year for Bruce County. I look forward to refocusing our goals on to the basics like affordable housing, quality infrastructure, and community safety initiatives.”

The position of Warden is achieved through a vote of peers on County Council, which is comprised of eight locally-elected municipal leaders who manage the affairs of our shared community and resources. The Warden chairs Council meetings, represents Bruce County at official functions, acts as an official spokesperson, and much more.

“On behalf of Bruce County Staff, I wish to congratulate Mayor Janice Jackson on her election. I look forward to the year ahead as we continue to make pandemic response and recovery a priority,” said Chief Administrative Officer Sandra Datars Bere.

Mayor Janice Jackson is Bruce County’s second female warden. Tessie Greig from Lion’s Head was elected as Bruce County’s first female warden in 1965.
