The District of Saanich is seeking young residents willing to serve as members on various advisory boards.
Youth representative positions are available on six of Saanich’s advisory committees. The Active Transportation committee, the Arts, Culture and Heritage committee, the Environment and Natural Areas committee, the Parks, Trails and Recreation committee, the Planning, Transportation and Economic Development committee and the Healthy Saanich committee each need one youth member.
Youth members must be between the ages of 16 and 24 and will have full voting power on their committees. The District is hopeful that the young committee members will bring unique perspectives on the issues discussed by the groups.
