Make a Difference by Volunteering on a Municipal Advisory Committee

Great minds don’t think alike – they think together! Work collaboratively with other passionate people in the community on a municipal advisory committee or commission.

Volunteering on a City of Kingston committee is an opportunity for residents to share their experience and expertise to make a difference on municipal issues in the community. From Jan. 9 to 20, eligible residents are encouraged to apply to serve on the following committees:

  • 18 years of age or older;
  • A resident/business owner in the City of Kingston, and
  • A Canadian Citizen, or Permanent Resident, a person who has been given permanent resident status by immigrating to Canada but is not a Canadian Citizen and has resided in Kingston for at least one year.
