Boards and Committees
A Board or Committee is established by Council under the Municipal Government Act or other provincial legislation and municipal bylaws. Depending on the mandate of the Board or Committee, some may act in an advisory capacity to Council by making recommendations on policy issues which have been delegated by Council to the Board or Committee, some may act in a governing capacity where they make decisions on behalf of the Board or Committee, and some act in a quasi-judicial capacity where they render a decision based on the evidence presented at a hearing.
Board or Committee membership is comprised of either Council representatives and members of the public or exclusively of members of the public. To find additional information on specific Boards and Committees, please click on the name of the Board or Committee below.
