Further information about the following current board and committee opportunities can be found at www.princegeorge.ca/committees:
- Tourism Prince George Society Board of Directors– Two Vacancies
The board meets six times annually and is responsible for establishing the strategic direction for Tourism Prince George in order to best achieve its goals related to the promotion and marketing of Prince George to visitors.
To date, city council has approved appointments to the Tourism Prince George Board based on recommendations from Tourism Prince George. This is the first time Council has invited applications from the general public in order to be consistent with the recruitment practices of all other City committees and boards.

The Library Board meets monthly and is responsible for the creation of policies, establishing goals and objectives of the library, and advocating for the library in the greater community.
- Advisory Committee on Accessibility – Four Vacancies
This committee meets monthly and is responsible for providing advice to City Council and soliciting feedback from the community on matters that affect persons with disabilities, seniors, and those with access challenges, including identification, removal, and prevention of physical and social barriers.
- Advisory Committee on Development Design – Four Vacancies
This committee meets weekly, as needed, to provide advice to city council on matters respecting policies and guidelines affecting the city’s physical/built environment as well as applications for development permits.
