Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are an essential part of the fabric of our community. There are a number of ways Wetaskiwinites can get involved in shaping their community and volunteering to serve on a board, committee, or authority is a great way to get involved in local government and represent your community. Each year, residents are appointed to various committees, boards, and authorities as vacancies occur or terms expire, and these groups contribute to Council’s decision-making process in an advisory capacity.

To apply for a position, an Application for Volunteer Members for Board, Committee, and Authorities form must be completed. CLICK HERE to download the form.
