Serving your city allows you to directly influence decisions in your community.

The City delivers some of its services through agencies and corporations. Each agency has its own board of directors that includes members of the public. You can apply to become a member of a board of directors and bring your skills to a range of corporate and community boards.

You can become a candidate in an election and run to be the next mayor, councillor or school board trustee. At the local level of government there are no political parties. In order to become a candidate, during the nomination period, you need to file a nomination paper, provide identification and pay a filing fee.
