North Saanich commissions act in an advisory capacity to Council. Currently there are two North Saanich Standing Committees: the Committee of the Whole and the Budget Committee, both committees are comprised of all members of Council.

Advisory Commissions
Mayor and Council are pleased to announce a new structure for the District’s Advisory Commissions.  Council has replaced the five former advisory commissions with two new commissions: the Community Planning Commission and the Community Stewardship Commission.

The Community Planning Commission will provide Council with advice on land use and agricultural matters referred to the Commission by Council or Staff.

Advice on parks, environmental and heritage referrals from Council or Staff will now be provided by the Community Stewardship Commission.

The District is excited about the opportunities the new commission structure will provide. Council will have a greater depth and diversity of advice coming from combined backgrounds of the new commission members.

Each year the Council appoints members of the North Saanich
community to serve as representatives on the advisory commissions. The District welcomes applications from members of the public in the fall of each year. For more information or if you are interested in serving on an advisory commission, please contact the Director of Corporate Services at 250-655-5453. Interested applicants can complete the application form for an Advisory Commission and return it to the Municipal Hall.
