Serve Your Community by Volunteering for a Board, Committee or Commission

The City of Grande Prairie invites you to serve on one of our Boards, Committees or Commissions. As a representative, you will assist in municipal operations through research and decision making on current issues.

What do Boards, Committees and Commissions do?

Boards, Committees and Commissions review material, weigh alternatives, and make recommendations to 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.
