About Boards, Committees, and Commissions

Boards, committees and commissions review material, weigh alternatives and make recommendations to City Council. Council is then able to make more informed decisions while substantially expediting the decision-making process.

Some boards, committees and commissions may also fill a quasi-judicial role, which means that the committee has the authority to make decisions and judgments as provided for in the Municipal Government Act.

At the City of Grande Prairie, representatives from the public to various boards, committees and commissions are appointed by Council from a pool of applicants. Some boards, committees and commissions are of an "internal operational" nature and therefore do not include public members.

Please find below, the complete lists for all Appointments.

Terms of Appointments

Public appointments will be based on a 1 to 3-year staggered renewal.

For further information please contact the Council Committee Coordinator at 780-357-8747.
