Esquimalt’s committees serve an important role in advising and providing policy recommendations to Mayor and Council. 

Dedicated volunteers from the community serve on these committees along with appointed staff and Council members.

Recruitment for Committees occurs in the fall.  Please visit the Current Vacancies page early in September for further information.

How can I provide public input?

As these Committees, Boards, and Commissions serve as an advisory role to Council, public input opportunities are not provided as part of their meeting agendas. However, public input may be provided to Council on any recommendations the Committees, Boards, and Commissions bring forward.

Esquimalt’s Advisory Committees, Commission and Board include:

The Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee and Environmental Advisory Committee were merged to form the Environmental, Parks and Recreation Committee on June 30, 2022.

Find committee terms of reference, minutes and agendas in the respective sections.
