Recruitment for new board/committee members takes place annually in December/January for up to 17 boards.
Edmonton City Council values the diverse voices of citizens in local governance and commits to appointing individuals that are reflective of the population of the City and that have been recruited through a fair, equitable and inclusive process.
Applications are accepted using the Taleo Online Application System. However, if you require the application in MS word format, please contact the Civic Agencies Team to request. Applicants must complete the application questions and attach a resume, by the application deadline. Tribunals applications (for the Assessment Review Board, Community Standards and Licence Appeal Committee, and Subdivision and Development Appeal Board) require their resumes to include the names of 3 references (with phone and email details), who will be contacted for shortlisted candidates. For all other Boards, 2 reference letters will be required from candidates that are shortlisted.
Shortlisted applicants will be:
- Notified by email and asked to contact the Civic Agencies Team to schedule their applicant interview with the assigned Selection/Standing Committee of Council.
- Asked to complete a
Public Biography Request Form
and, if appointed as a Board/Comittee Member, this information will be included in the City Council minutes as an introduction to City Council, the Board, and the citizens of Edmonton.
We strive to provide reasonable access and accommodations throughout the application and selection process. If you would like to request an accommodation at any stage of the process, please contact 780-496-8178 or email@example.com.

The evaluation criteria are outlined in Schedule 2 - Re-Appointment Form (Summary of Evaluations for Members Eligible for Re-appointment) of Procedure: C575D - Agencies, Boards, Committees and Commissions.
