Volunteers wanted to help run the City of Toronto
  
The City of Toronto will be holding information sessions as part of the
selection process for volunteer appointments to various City agencies, boards
and commissions. Topics at the information sessions include committee
structure, what is expected of volunteer board members, what they can expect,
and what skills and qualifications are being sought. Appointments are generally
for the three-year term of Council. All information sessions will be held in
the Council Chambers at Toronto City Hall,
100 Queen Street West.

The following City-run agencies are seeking applications for upcoming
appointments:
¨ Exhibition Place Board of Governors
¨ Metro Toronto Convention Centre
¨ Police Services Board
¨ Toronto Atmospheric Fund
¨ Toronto and Region Conservation Authority
¨ Parking Authority
¨ Toronto Licensing Tribunal
¨ St. Lawrence Centre for the Performing Arts
¨ Public Library Board
¨ Greater Toronto Airports Authority
¨ Fire Department Superannuation & Benefit Fund Committee
¨ Toronto Civic Employees Pension & Benefit Fund Committee
¨ Metro Toronto Pension Plan, and Metro Toronto Police Benefit Fund
¨ Sinking Fund
¨ Board of Health

Eligibility requirements differ slightly among the various agencies, boards and
commissions, but most require that the applicant be a resident or municipal tax
payer in Toronto and that they attend an information seminar before submitting
an application by a specified date. To reflect the diverse nature of the city's
population, women, people with disabilities, native peoples, and racial and
ethnic minorities are especially encouraged to participate.

For more information and a full schedule of sessions, call Access Toronto at
