The City of Brampton is calling for citizen appointments.
The mayor and council do a lot of important work, but some of the really important lifting in the community that helps guide their decisions is done by ordinary citizens who have the best interests of their community at heart. With a fresh council now in place, the organization of various committees that have significant sway are now being assembled. The city is inviting suggestions for appointment to citizen-based advisory committees, adjudicative committees, administrative tribunals and related appointments for the 2018-2022 term of council, ending in November 2022 or until a successor is appointed.
“Bramptonians who want to make an impact in our city should apply for a citizen appointment,” says Mayor Patrick Brown. “Informed decision-making is only possible with resident advisors – that’s why citizen-based advisory committees, adjudicative committees, administrative tribunals and related appointments are so crucial in Brampton. Together, we can make an impact.”
The city needs citizens for related appointments as follows:
Citizen-based Advisory Committees
• Accessibility Advisory Committee
• Age-Friendly Brampton Advisory Committee (requires three adults (55+) and three persons aged 15-24)
• Brampton Community Safety Advisory Committee (requires four citizen representatives, one from each of the four quadrants of the City as divided by Highway 410 and Queen Street)
• Brampton Heritage Board
• Brampton School Traffic Safety Council
• Cycling Advisory Committee
• Environment Advisory Committee

The appointments require residents’ time and active participation to have a meaningful impact for the city.
