The Town of Innisfil has a variety of committees and boards which serve the community and make recommendations to Council based on their mandate. Committees are made up of a group of volunteers appointed by Council and feature at least one Council member and one Town employee to provide support.

Committees capture feedback and advice from residents and provide input to Council. We are proud to have a wide variety of committees that provide recommendations on issues ranging from traffic safety and accessibility to heritage and more.

Current committee and board opportunities 

Joining a Town committee or board is a great way to get involved and support your community. Council appoints qualified candidates to volunteer, and members typically serve for a regular Council term of four years. We encourage you to participate if you think you are a great fit. We're currently accepting applications for the Committee of Adjustment.

Innisfil residents, tenants or property owners, 18 years old or older, can apply to serve on committees and boards.
