The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo Council has established a number of Boards and Committees that serve the Wood Buffalo community in a volunteer capacity. These Boards help to advise and inform the Mayor and Councillors on matters that impact the public, giving residents access and input with decision makers in government.

The Municipality’s Legislative Services department carries out an annual recruitment drive for volunteers to serve on Council-appointed Boards and Committees. Members of the public are encouraged to submit an application for consideration as a volunteer on one of the various Boards and Committees.
