About County Representation

Providing Valuable Guidance and Expertise

Lac Ste. Anne County leverages the collective expertise of Councillors, staff members and volunteers in the community to help steward its many boards, commissions and committees. Members gain valuable experience while giving back to the community, and the community benefits greatly from the breadth of knowledge these individuals provide. Boards, committees and commissions whose meetings are managed by Lac Ste. Anne County have detailed meeting information on the County website, including minutes and agendas.

Establishment of Boards & Committees

While boards, committees and commissions may each have varying reasons for their existence (some are required by legislation; some are "ad-hoc" (formed for single-issue purposes), and some are strictly advisory bodies), most are established for the following reasons:

  • Assist Council by reducing the workload. Boards, committees and commissions will review material, weigh alternatives, and make recommendations to Council, thus substantially reducing the turnaround time and sparing Council a great deal of work.
  • Provide further opportunities for public input into the political forum.

Appointed Representatives

Council appoints representatives from both Council and the public to various boards, committees and commissions annually, at the Organizational meeting held in October. Some of the boards, committees and commissions are of an "internal operational" nature and therefore do not warrant public participation.
