Town Committees

Committee Vacancies

One of the best ways to get involved in making our Town a better place is to join a committee that shares your interests. You can get involved as a committee member, as a volunteer, or on specific projects. If you have ideas that you would like to see realized, bringing your ideas to the appropriate committee is the best way to sound out your idea and get support for it.

The Town of Cardston is currently seeking for volunteers from the community to serve as members on the following committees:

The Truth and Reconciliation Advisory Committee will be tasked with advising Council on how to best implement the Calls To Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada that specifically apply to local governments. Read the bylaw linked above for details.

If you feel you are suited to serve on either of these committees, please download the application form below and submit it using one of the methods indicated on the form.
