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.

Get involved!

The council of the Corporation of the City of Waterloo invites members of the public who reside, own property, own a business, work in the City of Waterloo or attend a Waterloo campus of a post-secondary institution to apply for council boards and committees for a term ending Nov. 30, 2018*.

Additional information for each committee including the terms of reference is available on our serving on a committee page. Please note meeting dates and times are approximate and are subject to change based on majority of member availability.
