Committee Objectives

The Committee is made up of seven (7) local citizens who have a vision for Moncton’s future and experience or expertise, professional or lived, in the following (but not limited to) subject matters:

  • Moncton’s local history (social, cultural, environmental, economic, etc.)

  • Housing development, including market, affordable, accessible, and/or supportive housing

  • Public health, homelessness, mental health, and addictions

  • Schools and education accessibility

  • Recreation, social inclusion, equity, accessibility, and supports for immigrants’ integration

  • Economic development and entrepreneurship (locally, regionally, and beyond)

  • Public infrastructure development and civil engineering

  • Transportation and commuting issues (including connectivity, equity, accessibility, etc.)

  • Age-friendly communities, including healthy aging, aging-in-place, and intergenerational issues

  • Sustainability, renewable energy, green economy, climate change mitigation/adaptation


The goal is to collaboratively discern and reflect the community’s voice on the question, “where and how should Moncton grow over the next 25 years?”. The purpose is to recommend strategic directions that will guide Moncton’s development and growth pattern through the comprehensive Urban Growth Strategy.


To fulfill its mandate, it is anticipated the Committee will, among other things: 

  • Identify and advise ways to increase public awareness of the broader Urban Growth Strategy public consultation process. Support the Urban Growth Strategy’s public participation plan.

  • Provide a forum for dialogue related to community growth issues that Moncton faces and is forecasted to face. The committee will highlight high-level community concerns that the Urban Growth Strategy and/or eventual Municipal Plan Review ought to address.

  • Investigate opportunities for Moncton to grow inclusively, equitably, accessibly, sustainably, healthily, and prosperously.

  • Provide perspective to City staff on strategic directions and matters related to planning complete communities, public engagement, urban growth, public infrastructure, and sustainable development (e.g. housing, schools, transportation, accessibility, community health, food security, etc.).

  • Any other Urban Growth Strategy matter referred to the Committee by City Administration.


The Committee will meet monthly, and each meeting will be 60-90 minutes (schedule to be determined with appointed members).
