Pilon entered the apprentice contest looking at what it could do for her career, she admitted.
This term of Council will remain in office until November 14, 2022, when a new Council will be put in place after the municipal election is held on Monday, October 24, 2022.
As an apprentice at Goldcorp, Pilon's skills are available to any of the company's departments.
The unique aspect of her job is that she joins Telfer at board meetings, investor presentations, conferences and undertakes research for him.
Six were selected for interviews with Telfer, who met them in Ottawa.
After three rounds of voting, the majority of Council selected Melanie Pilon.
