Chief Administrative Office

Andy Allison, CAO

Clarington's Chief Administrative Officer is Andy Allison (pictured right).

The Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) is appointed by Council to oversee the administration of the corporation. One of the main roles of the CAO is to make sure that Council's decisions are carried out. The CAO also advises Council on policy and programs.  One of the main governing policies has to do with transparency and accountability. The CAO is also responsible for establishing administrative policies and procedures as well as overseeing the management of Municipal staff. The CAO ensures the organization is run in an efficient and effective manner. The Chief Administration Officer also assists Council in developing a strategic plan. The document sets out Council priorities for its four-year term; it's a compilation of goals that Councillors want to achieve while in Office.

The Chief Administrative Office is also responsible for Communications and Tourism. Our main priority is to inform and engage the community. We strive to make sure that residents know what's going on in the Municipality and in their Government. Communications is responsible for the Municipal website, as well as our Twitter, Facebook and YouTube sites. We also work hard to promote Clarington as a top of mind tourism destination. We have a beautiful diverse community and we want to share it.
