What is a Committee?
A Committee is a group made up of volunteers that makes recommendations to Council based on their mandate. They are appointed by Council and meet once a month. Usually, these committees feature at least one Council member and one Town Employee to provide support. Having committees is one of the best ways to make sure Innisfil Council and Town Staff gather feedback and advice from residents. The Town of Innisfil is proud to have a wide variety of committees providing recommendations about issues ranging from Economic Development, to Accessibility, to Heritage and many more.
Want to Get Involved?
Joining a committee is a great way to get involved and support your community. Take a moment to learn about our different committees and see how you can get involved. If you’d like to join a committee but don’t know where to start feel free to contact our Clerks department.
As new Committees are formed, the Town will advise if new members are needed.
