An overview of the City's agencies, boards and commissions, Office of the City Clerk's role and applying to serve on a civic agency.
Agencies, Boards, Committees and Commissions (or Civic Agencies) are:
Collective terms used to mean: all agencies, boards, committees, commissions, and task forces to which City Council makes an appointment of citizens-at-large, council members, or representatives of external organizations.
Each year Edmontonians are appointed to Edmonton's Civic boards - which includes agencies, boards, committees, commissions and task forces.
Council values the input of civic boards on matters which impact Edmontonians. Whether advisory, decision-making, quasi-judicial or governing, all provide citizens with an opportunity to participate in the present and future direction of the city.
The Office of the City Clerk oversees board-member recruitment, appointments and training; as well as the establishment and classification of new boards, and assists Council in developing guidelines for the agencies.
