Appointments to RCMP Contract Management Committee

UBCM is currently looking to appoint local government representatives from RCMP policed jurisdictions to the British Columbia Local Government Contract Management Committee (LGCMC). There are five vacancies that are required to be filled by local government elected officials or staff members.

The LGCMC Terms of Reference stipulates that the Committee consist of nine representatives from local governments policed by the RCMP. With five of the nine members’ terms having expired at the end of 2016, the following categories require local government appointments:

  • Community with population over 15,000, from the Lower Mainland RCMP District but outside the Metro Vancouver Regional District (2-year term);
  • Community with population over 15,000, from outside the Lower Mainland RCMP District (2-year term);
  • Community with population between 5,000 and 15,000 (2-year term);
  • Regional district (2-year term);
  • Community with population under 5,000 (2-year term).

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 February 1, 2017. The UBCM Executive will look to make the LGCMC appointments at an upcoming meeting.
