What is a committee?

Committees are established by Council to assist and provide opportunities for public involvement in municipal matters. Committees are advisory in nature and function within the authority set out in their Terms of Reference or by Establishment Bylaw. When citizen representatives are appointed, they serve in a voluntary capacity and bring local knowledge, expertise and experience to specific areas of municipal concern. Committees support Council in other ways as well - through fostering the spirit of volunteerism in the community, extending the capability of Council and staff to take on additional tasks and inviting community input, commitment and support throughout the process.

For more information about each Committee, please select a Committee from the list below.

Committee meetings are open to the public, unless the topic relates to a subject included in Section 90 of the Community Charter. In such cases, meetings will be closed to the public. Minutes of each regular committee meeting are approved by the elected Chair and the committee and are then forwarded to Council.
