Dave Smeyers


Hi, my name is Dave Smeyers. I was elected on May 17, 2024, in the Village of Delia By-election.

I started my working career as a police constable in the military and then the Metropolitan Toronto Police Service for almost a decade.

In the early 80’s I moved to Calgary and went back to school “Devry Institute” taking the Computer Science Degree program. This was the start of my new career in “IT” Information Technology. Over the next 3 decades starting as a computer program, I worked my way through the industry including being the Alberta IT Director for KPMG, then the senior manager for western Canada. In 1998 I got my MCSE+I designation and started SAIT’s fast track MCSE program and was their coordinator / lead instructor.

Since retiring in 2012 I wanted to move to a smaller community and in 2016 while looking for a house I found a home and great community in Delia including finding my soul mate.

I have 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren which I love and who live in Calgary.

As in the police service where the motto is to “serve and protect” I hope to do the same here as your newly elected councilor.
