COQUITLAM, B.C., Oct. 8, 2021 – Are you interested in volunteering your time, sharing your expertise and helping your community? The City of Coquitlam is seeking volunteers for its 2022 Advisory Committees in a variety of areas, including culture services, economic development, multiculturalism, sports and recreation, sustainability and environment, and universal accessibility. 

Interested in Serving on the Library Board?

Citizens who have had some level of community involvement, knowledge of Board governance, and a general interest in libraries are encouraged to apply. The term of appointment is two years and the appointment is a voluntary position with no remuneration.  

About Advisory Committees

Advisory Committees are responsible for providing information, well-considered advice and recommendations for consideration by City Council and staff on specific issues of civic concern. Committees are made up of organization and citizen representatives and one or two Council members, as appointed by Council.

City Council is currently inviting residents to apply to serve on the 2022 Advisory Committees. Citizens who have had some level of community involvement and a general interest in the topic area are encouraged to apply. Terms of appointment are typically one-year, and appointments are voluntary positions with no remuneration. 

How to Apply and Criteria

Those interested in this opportunity are required to submit an application demonstrating their passion for the community, as well as any relevant knowledge and experience that they could bring to the committee they are applying to.

  • Applicants may not be employees of the City of Coquitlam.

  • Applicants of any age, race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, political belief, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, neighbourhood, and income level are encouraged to apply.
  • Applicants to an advisory committee should be aware of the required time commitment and be able to commit to meetings for the full term of the appointment (January through December).
