Haldimand County seeking members for Accessibility Advisory Committee and Haldimand OPP Detachment Board

Haldimand County is currently accepting applications for its Accessibility Advisory Committee and Haldimand OPP Detachment Board (formerly known as the Police Services Board). Interested residents can learn more about the roles and responsibilities of committee members and apply online. Applications will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2024.

Recruitment for boards and committees of Council is typically held every four years with the commencement of a new term of Council. Recruitment for the Accessibility Advisory Committee and Haldimand OPP Detachment Board is occurring now – later in the Council term – as a result of vacancies.

The legislated Accessibility Advisory Committee is made up of county resident volunteers, one Councillor and one member of staff. This committee provides practical knowledge on a wide-range of accessibility and disability concerns including: physical, visual, hearing impairment, intellectual, mental health, seniors’ issues and communication. The Accessibility Advisory Committee meets four times annually, or in emergent cases as required.

While applications for the Accessibility Advisory Committee from all members of the public are welcome, the county encourages individuals with both visible and invisible disabilities – who have unique perspectives based on lived experience – to apply.

The Haldimand OPP Detachment Board establishes priorities, objectives and policies regarding policing in Haldimand County in consultation with the Detachment Commander and Haldimand County Council.

Further information about Haldimand County’s boards and committees – including Terms of Reference, member roles and responsibilities – is available on the Boards and Committees page. Residents are encouraged to review the Terms of Reference prior to submitting their application.
