Volunteer Advisory Committees are established by Council and are comprised of volunteer members from the Hamilton community. Volunteer Advisory Committees provide advice to Council through reports, on their area of expertise to an assigned Standing Committee. Members of Volunteer Advisory Committees are selected by the Interview Sub-Committee of the appropriate Standing Committee and are appointed by Council. When Volunteer Advisory Committees hold a ‘meeting’ as that term is defined in the Municipal Act, 2001/the City’s Procedural By-law, it must comply with the open meeting provisions of the Municipal Act, 2001 and the City’s Procedural By-law as applicable.
The Women and Gender Equity Committee for the City of Hamilton acts as an Advisory Committee on matters pertaining to gender inequities faced by women, trans, and non-binary individuals. It achieves this mandate by providing Council input on matters of municipal concern and evaluating the City on its related efforts.
