Volunteer Positions Available for Esquimalt Committees, Commission and Board

Every Fall Esquimalt seeks volunteers for its Committees, Commission and Board. This is a great way to get involved and provide Council with valuable input and insight into issues affecting our community. I served on the township's Environmental Advisory Committee before running for Council and really learned a lot from the experience! We also encourage youth to apply as youth liaisons to our Parks and Rec Advisory Committee. This perspective is really valuable and we hope to see lots of applicants! Please consider applying for one of the openings in the press release below:
