The North Grenville Council is committed to community engagement through your participation on community advisory committees. This municipality is fortunate to have a wealth of residents who care about their community and want to contribute to maintaining and enhancing the various elements that make our municipality such a great place to live, work and play.

On May 21, 2019 NG council passed a by-law to establish terms of reference for the following committees of council:

  • Active Transportation Advisory
  • Accessibility Advisory
  • Agricultural and Rural Affairs Advisory – New
  • Arts and Culture Advisory – New
  • Community and Economic Development Advisory – Previously Passed and Established
  • Community Health, Wellness and Fitness Advisory – NEW
  • Environmental Action Advisory – NEW
  • Heritage Advisory

Now is your opportunity to assist council as we move forward on issues that you told us were important during the campaign. These committees align with the soon to be released Council Workplan that will guide us for the next 3 ½ years. Please note that the Community and Economic Development Advisory committee was passed at an earlier council meeting and membership is already established.

Some of these committees have previously existed and some are new. The terms of reference for all have been revised. Membership will consist of 4-9 volunteers and up to 2 members of Council. There will be staff support for each committee.

Committees of Council allow for more focused and timely investigation of a specific matter, meetings are more informal, allow members of the public to add their perspective on the specific matter and make recommendations to council for their review and potential approval.

Many years ago a friend of mine gave me a Little Treasure book on ‘Success’ and it contained the following passage; “If you live or work in an environment that makes decisions through committee, make darn sure you’re on the committee.”

We invite and encourage you to share your passion, skills, experience and knowledge with us by applying to be on one the advisory committees listed above.

Terms of Reference and application forms can be found on the NG website https://www.northgrenville.ca or call 613-258-9569

You are also welcome to contact any of your council members for further information.
We want YOU!
