Under the Nova Scotia Municipal Government Act, Town Council can establish special citizen advisory committees, community committees, boards, or commissions to advise the council on important community matters. Some of these committees oversee Town facilities and work directly with staff, such as the Recreation and Parks Committee. These committees allow the people of the area to participate in the governance of the community and Mayor and Council encourage citizen participation on these committees and boards. To be eligible for these voluntary positions you must be a resident of The Town of Pictou. For information about these committees or how to get involved in your community contact the Town of Pictou Administration office.
Mayor and Councillors also participate in local and regional committees that are of interest to the Town. Current Committees of Council and committees in which the Town of Pictou has representation include:
