Appointment to RCMP Management Committee

UBCM is currently looking to appoint one local government representative from an RCMP-policed jurisdiction to the British Columbia Local Government Contract Management Committee (LGCMC). This vacancy is the result of a resignation and shall be filled for a term ending December 31, 2018.

The LGCMC Terms of Reference stipulate that the Committee consist of nine representatives, representing a variety of categories, from local governments policed by the RCMP. As the result of a member resignation, the following category requires a local government representative:

  • Community with population over 15,000, from the Lower Mainland RCMP District but outside the Metro Vancouver Regional District.

If, upon the conclusion of the appointment process, this category remains vacant due to a lack of candidates who meet all criteria (as outlined above), a representative from the remaining pool of applicants shall be selected to fill the vacancy. As such, all interested parties are encouraged to apply for this vacant Committee position.

The Local Government Contract Management Committee is a forum for consultation, analysis, and communication between local governments and the Province regarding the management of the Agreement under which the RCMP provide local police services in BC. The Committee is mandated to analyze and respond to changes proposed by the federal government and/or RCMP.

The Committee will hold at least two in-person meetings per year, to be held in Richmond, BC. Elected officials shall be reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses, in accordance with UBCM policy.

Interested parties may contact Bhar Sihota, UBCM Policy Analyst, by September 15, 2017.
