Boards and Committees

TRCA is a body corporate whose administration of policy is determined by its mandate under the Conservation Authorities Act and by regulations and rules it has adopted. To carry out its responsibilities, the Authority elects an Executive Committee and a Budget/Audit Advisory Board to make recommendations on those matters defined in their Terms of Reference.

The Executive Committee meets monthly, as does the Authority, and has been delegated some of the day-to-day management decisions of the Authority, including the administration of Ontario Regulation 166/06 (Regulation of Development, Interference with Wetlands and Alterations to Shorelines and Watercourses).

The advisory board considers matters assigned to them as provided for in the Rules of Conduct for the Authority, and as described in the adopted Terms of Reference.

The public may attend all meetings of the Authority, its Executive Committee and advisory board. For information on requesting to make a delegation at a meeting, refer to the Delegation Information
