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). Four vacancies 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 four of the nine members’ terms having expired at the end of 2017, the following categories require local government appointments:

  • Community with population over 15,000, from the Lower Mainland RCMP District and within the Metro Vancouver Regional District (2 representatives, 3-year terms);
  • Community with population over 15,000, from outside the Lower Mainland RCMP District (1 representative, 3-year term); and,
  • Community with population between 5,000 and 15,000 (1 representative, 3-year term).

Upon the conclusion of the appointment process, if any of these categories remain vacant due to a lack of candidates who meet all criteria (as outlined above), representatives from the remaining pool of applicants may be selected to fill vacancies. 

The Local Government Contract Management Committee is a forum for consultation, analysis and communication between local governments and the Province of British Columbia 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 2, 2018. The UBCM Executive will consider LGCMC appointments at an upcoming meeting.
