Each year Edmontonians are appointed to Edmonton's Civic boards - which includes agencies, boards, committees, commissions and task forces.

Council values the input of civic boards on matters which impact Edmontonians. Whether advisory, decision-making, quasi-judicial or governing, all provide citizens with an opportunity to participate in the present and future direction of the city.

The Office of the City Clerk oversees board-member recruitment, appointments and training; as well as the establishment and classification of new boards, and assists Council in developing guidelines for the agencies.
