What do Committees, Boards, and Commissions Do?
Committees, boards, and commissions meet to discuss important issues that affect the City of Prince George. Some groups form through citizen engagement while others - such as the Prince George Public Library Board - come together through provincial legislative mandate.
These groups function to help the City operate as a representative, efficient, and transparent local government and Council Committees are directed by way of individual Terms of Reference and the Committees, Commissions, and Boards Procedures Manual.
In accordance with the Provincial Health Officer order issued on December 7, 2020, members of the public (including the media) are currently prohibited from attending Council Committee meetings.
