Let’s make sure everyone is included in Kingston! Help us change the City’s committee recruitment and appointment process to:

  • Improve overall participation rates.
  • Improve the participation of under-represented community members.

Complete the survey, below, from April 9 to April 30, to help us develop recommendations that will be considered by the Administrative Policies Committee on June 10.

Background

This effort responds to two recent motions from Council:

  1. A Dec. 1, 2020 motion directed staff to:
    • prepare a Strengths/Weaknesses/Opportunities/Threats (SWOT) analysis of the current committee recruitment process including input from all committees and boards;
    • research best practices across Ontario; and
    • submit a report, including recommendations, to the Administrative Policies Committee giving the committee enough time to report back to Council with recommendations before the end of June 2021
  2. A Dec. 15/16, 2020 motion from Council directed staff to provide recommendations to Council by Q2 2021 on increasing the rates of under-represented people on municipal committees and boards and incorporating the equity goals from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities framework for the 2022 municipal candidate nomination process.
