A commitment to community participation and service is a key to the City’s success. Residents and individuals with related experience are welcome to apply to become members of an agencies, board, commission, or committee (ABCCs). 

The City is committed to an inclusive appointment process. Membership of ABCCs should:

  • reflect the diversity of the community
  • represent stakeholder groups
  • bring specific skills and expertise that contribute to good governance
  • represent specific groups of service users
  • bring volunteers or profile to a service

Members should collectively cover the range of skills and experience needed to meet the requirements of each group.

Participating in an ABCC


Public members of ABCCs are appointed by Moncton City Council through recommendations by the Mayor. Suggestions for appointments may come to the Mayor through formal recruitment processes, suggestions by Council members or chairs or members of the groups, or from the database of candidates who have applied.

Generally, members may be appointed for terms of up to three years, with a maximum of one re-appointment. Members serve on a voluntary and unpaid basis, unless otherwise provided for by legislation or other defining documents. Where appropriate, expenses may be reimbursed if pre-approved.

Eligibility requirements

Members of ABCCs must:

  • Be a resident of Moncton, own and/or operate a business in Moncton, or be a subject-matter expert specifically invited for their skillset or professional background.
  • Be at least 18 years of age. (Exceptions for youth ABCCs).
  • Undergo a criminal record check if serving in a capacity that oversees funds, deals with a vulnerable population, or as otherwise appropriate. 
  • Be available to attend 80 per cent of regular meetings in a 12-month period. Exceptions are permitted with just cause (ex. illness, bereavement).
  • Sign the City’s confidentiality agreement, as well as adhere to the applicable general standards of behaviour outlined in the Code of Conduct for Elected Officials.

Relatives of Council members and City employees are eligible for appointment to ABCCs, except in the case of remunerated roles. City employees may not apply for appointment, but may be appointed to an ABCC by virtue of their position.
