City Council & Committees

Governing an institution as diverse, broad, and complicated as a city takes the cooperation of a number of elected and appointed people, in various roles.

City Council is the main legislative and governing body of the City of Fredericton. City Council is made up of a mayor, representing the city as a whole, and 12 councillors, each representing one of the city’s 12 individual wards.

Council governs the city through regular council meetings, council-in-committee meetings, standing committee meetings, and other committee and board meetings.

Councillors also sit on various boards, committees and commissions. The purpose of committees is to study specific issues before bringing them to a meeting of Council for consideration.
