Committees and Boards

When vacancies occur, we advertise the opportunity and request interested citizens to complete the Application For Appointment to Committees and Boards.

The Municipality of Trent Lakes has established boards and committees to provide advice and recommendations to Council. Most committees include members of the public and members of Council.

Some advisory committees are provincially legislated, while others are created by Council to address a specific topic or facility. Advisory committees or special project/ad hoc committees may be created on a temporary basis with a specific end date.

Each advisory committee must adhere to a clearly defined Terms of Reference approved by Council. All committees must provide a report to Council at least one per year. They must also post all meeting agendas and minutes online.
