Council appoints committees to examine and review topics or issues that impact citizens and make recommendations.

Standing committees

Standing committees facilitate the decision making process for Council. They are comprised of Council members who participate in discussions and send their recommendations to Council for final decisions.

Advisory committees

Advisory committees make recommendations related to specific topics and/or areas of interest. Most advisory committees have Council members and citizen representatives. The recommendations of an advisory committee are considered by the General Committee and then sent to City Council for final decisions.

Quasi-judicial committees

Quasi-judicial committees are appointed by Council to make decisions on matters related to City by-laws or local improvements or election campaign finances.
