Grouped listing of Committees, Sub-Committees, Agencies, Boards and Tribunals based on reporting structure. Not all committees have a direct report to City Council.
The City of Hamilton, supported by City Council, want to ensure that its Committees and Local Boards reflect the diversity of Hamilton’s growing and vibrant population, including those with lived experience have an opportunity to participate in local municipal government. With this in mind, we strongly encourage applications from women, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ2IA+, Black, Indigenous, people of colour and those from equity-deserving groups. All interested individuals are invited to consider these opportunities.
Individuals interested can apply to a maximum of two (2) Committees. Each committee requires a separate application.
The application period is now closed.
