Committees, Commission, Boards and Authorities

Council has established several Committees, Commissions, Boards and Authorities to help conduct a large amount of City business. These bodies are established in accordance with the Municipal Government Act, and can be categorized as follows:


These are committees that exist due to legislative requirements. Although each of these committees is established by municipal by-law (or resolution) there are other statutory requirements that must be taken into consideration. Within the City of Camrose, these include: The Subdivision and Development Appeal Board, Assessment Review Board, Camrose Police Commission and Camrose Library Board.

Advisory Standing Committees

These committees are created by Council to provide advice or guidance on specific municipal initiatives. The City of Camrose has established several advisory committees including the Green Action Committee, Camrose Airport Commission, the Social Development Committee, and the Community Transit Advisory Committee. 

Ad Hoc Committees

Ad Hoc committees serve a specific purpose for a predetermined length of time, or for the duration of a project. Once the task is complete, an ad hoc committee will disband. An example of an ad hoc committee is the Camrose Nordic Commemorative Committee.

External Community Committees

Not a municipal committee, Council will appoint City representatives to serve on external committees throughout the community. An example of an external committee is the Camrose Regional Exhibition.
