Richmond invites residents to participate in local government

26 August 2022

Richmond City Council is encouraging residents to apply for one of over 65 volunteer positions on 17 advisory bodies, all of which focus on specific civic areas of interest. The deadline to apply for the terms beginning in January 2023 is Monday, October 3, 2022.

“I encourage anyone in the community with an interest in local government to apply for a position on a City advisory committee,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “Each of these groups meets on a regular basis to discuss local issues in its area of focus, such as agriculture, arts, economics and seniors programs. In this way, advisory committees play a key role in local government by bringing local expertise and perspective to the forefront. It’s a great way for people who have specialized skills or who are passionate about a given area to contribute to the City.”

The Council appointed roles are voluntary with no remuneration. Committee sizes vary, as do the length of terms.

Those interested in applying are asked to submit their completed online application form and resume by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, October 3, 2022.

Application forms and information on the various committees, their mandates and terms of reference are available online at
