Accepting applications for MD of Bighorn Board, Committee and Commission

Members of the public are invited to submit an application if they are interested in participating on an MD Board, Committee or Commission. 

The Municipal Government Act requires all Councils in Alberta to hold an organizational meeting every year. During the organizational meeting Council undertakes a number of administrative housekeeping matters and appoints public members to various Boards/Commissions/Committees. The MD of Bighorn’s organizational meeting is held in October.

Most of the Boards/Commissions/Committees are advisory bodies, providing advice and recommendations to Council, although some are autonomous and make decisions on their own. Time commitments vary with some Boards/Commissions/Committees meeting regularly on a monthly basis, while some meet only when necessary (at the call of the Chair), or when an issue arises that requires their review. Some of the Boards/Commissions/Committees have specific and sometimes mandatory training requirements, that are provided by Provincial staff or other personnel. Successful applicants are provided per-diems and, if incurred, coverage of expenses.

You can apply for the following Board, Committee and Commissions: 

Applications can be dropped off in person, faxed or submitted electronically to
