Join an Advisory Board or Committee

Join an agency, board, or committee

To ensure that the membership of our civic agencies, boards, and committees represents the broader community and can address the issues of those communities, we encourage applicants of all ages, genders, neighbourhoods, racial origins, income levels, and sexual orientation to apply.

The description of each agency, board, or committee includes its mandate, as well as its minimum expected time commitment.

If you are interested in applying for a vacancy, review the list of vacancies, eligibility requirements, and then submit your application online using the following links.

How appointments are made

All appointments are made by City Council.

Copies of all applications will be made available to the Mayor and to each member of the City Council. Appointments to civic agencies and committees will be made by the Council during a subsequent meeting. It may take up to eight weeks after the deadline for appointments to be made.

Every person who is appointed will be notified as soon as possible. All applicants for any position will receive notification from the City Clerk's Office listing the nominees who have been appointed.

Thank you

Thank you for giving so generously of your time. Your spirit of involvement and generous contributions help make Vancouver a great city of communities — one that cares about its people, environment, and our opportunities to live, work, and prosper.

Thank you,

Mayor, City Council, Park Board, and City Staff
