Council relies on advisory boards committees to provide recommendations on pertinent issues within the Township, and draws on the expertise of citizen volunteer members. Council invites you to volunteer your time and experience to participate on such boards and committees dealing with issues ranging from heritage buildings to community facilities and local cultural events. To recognize, promote and strengthen the sense of community, diversity and multiculturalism, all residents are encouraged to get involved. Selection Process Most committees are appointed for a term concurrent with Council. Therefore, soon after the Municipal Election, the Clerk’s Department will advertise for appointments to boards and committees, including on the web page. However, occasionally there are vacancies to be filled. Therefore, we encourage interested persons to complete and submit an application throughout the year and you may be contacted if there should be a vacancy occur. Applicants are responsible to ensure that the Clerk's Office has received their application. Council will appoint qualified applicants to vacancies based on the application as submitted. All applicants will be notified of the final determination by mail.
