The work of Fredericton’s City Council is informed by the work of various committees and groups. These include standing committees, a Planning Advisory Committee (PAC), and other advisory committees, boards and commissions.

At a high level, the purpose of any committee is to provide advice to City Council and staff on specifically-mandated areas of interest, and contribute to the development of policies, programs and initiatives.

Standing committees are made up of City Councillors appointed to that role. These committees, in addition to PAC, have regular monthly meetings. Special committees are composed of volunteers, appointed by Council, and they meet as needed.
