To facilitate the appointment of a citizen representative to the Accessibility Advisory Committee (ACC) for a term specified in the report.

 

IMPACTS

 

Policy Impacts

 

In accordance with City Councils policy statement to Strengthening Eligibility and Diversity Requirements for board and committee representation:

 

City Council values and seeks to further enhance the inclusive nature of Regina through living the values of respect and trust, celebrating the strength that comes from diversity and inviting participation from all in decision making. Nominees will have been recruited through an inclusive, transparent and equitable process and appointments made by City Council will reflect these objectives.

 

Representative citizen members provide a varied and valued perspective, reflecting and honouring the diversity of our community and bring experience, skills and expertise that contribute to good governance and informed decision making.

 

The appointment of citizen members to the Accessibility Advisory Committee highlights the policy statement to strengthen eligibility and diversity representation on all Boards, Commissions and Committees.

 

There are no accessibility, environmental, financial, legal/risk or other impacts.
