Rounding out council this term are four incumbents: Clinton Froehlick, who received the second highest amount of votes at 311, Bruce Black (231), Jonathan Siggelkow (224), and Isak Skjaveland (217). The only incumbent not voted back in was Richard Sakundiak, who received the least amount of votes at 148.
The councillors join Mayor Claude Lagace, who was acclaimed. The election results are still unofficial.
