Community Liaison 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).  Earlier this year, the NPCA Board of Directors approved the 2014-2017 NPCA Strategic Plan.

As stated in the NPCA Strategic Plan, within the parameter of “Transparent Governance & Enhanced Accountability,” the NPCA will “Expand public participation to support NPCA governance via the establishment of a Community Liaison Advisory Committee (environment, agriculture, landowners, development, industry, volunteer sectors).  The mandate of the Community Liaison Advisory Committee is “To provide collaborative local perspective, guidance and expert advice in the implementation of NPCA’s 2014-2017 Strategic Plan and other issues as the Board may request.”
