Committee Vacancies

Joining a committee of Council is a great way to get involved in your community, provide valuable insight, and gain experience with local government.

Please note that certain Committee meetings take place during the day.

For information on the various Committees, their mandates, and meeting dates and times, please visit our Council and Committees webpage and view our Committees Information Flyer.

The information on Committee applications is gathered under the authority of the Municipal Act, 2001 and in accordance with the provisions of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The information will be used by members of Council and City staff to complete the committee selection process; it may form part of the public record and may be made available to the public through requests and through the City of Owen Sound website. Questions about this collection should be addressed to the City Clerk, Briana Bloomfield.

Applications will open on Friday, October 28, 2022 at 8:30 a.m. and must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, November 25, 2022. A resume and references must be submitted with an application form in order to be considered for a position.

An application can be completed via the online form, by dropping off an application at City Hall (in person during office hours, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., or in the drop box by the front doors), or by mail to:
