Committees of Council

A group of men and women in a meeting

The City of Waterloo's committees of council help shape the future of our community.

They provide advice and feedback to council on a variety of issues, including arts and culture, accessibility, uptown Waterloo and the environment.

Consider getting involved in civic life by volunteering for a committee.

For information on the City of Waterloo's committee review, please view the deferred committee review recommendations passed by council on Aug. 22, 2016. Minutes of the meeting can be found here.
