Member since 2016
Micki Ruth is the Chair of the Edmonton Police Commission.
With a significant background in human resources, Ms. Ruth brings a solid management background having managed diverse teams in the aviation, telecommunications and financial services organizations.
Ms. Ruth’s approach to problem solving and oversight is a blend of knowledge garnered from experience in policing, provincial prosecutions, banking investigations, and 20 years in human resources in financial, aviation, and the telecommunications industry. As a human resources professional, she consulted and planned on behalf of her employers on proactive planning, strategic alignment, employment relations, and organizational effectiveness.
Service oriented and community minded, Ms. Ruth gravitates to endeavors and organizations with a distinct approach to improving what is already in place and challenging the status quo.
Ms. Ruth’s board and commission experience is significant, particularly with regards to policing issues and oversight. She participated as a member of the Halifax Regional Municipality’s Board of Police Commissioners from 2011 to 2014 – as Chair for one year and Vice-Chair for two years. She contributed to the approval and oversight of the police budget while serving mandated oversight to the Board of Police Commissioners for Halifax Regional Police and the Advisory Board for Halifax District RCMP. Her earlier experience as a police constable in Ontario combined with her work in human resources energized her in her ability to work towards an improved policing service in a uniquely integrated environment.
