NPCA Advisory Committee

The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) is governed by a Board of Directors appointed from participating municipalities (Region of Niagara, City of Hamilton and Haldimand County).

As stated in the NPCA 2014-2017 Strategic Plan, within the parameter of “Transparent Governance & Enhanced Accountability,” the NPCA will “Expand public participation to support NPCA governance via the establishment of an Advisory Committee (conservation, agriculture, landowners, development, industry, volunteer sectors).

The mandate of the Advisory Committee is “To provide collaborative local perspective, guidance and expert advice in the implementation of NPCA’s policies, plans and/or other issues as the Board may request.”

Members will serve in a non-governance capacity with a focus on providing advice and recommendations for consideration by the NPCA Board.
