Leading a Strong Community

The Town of Cochrane has multiple Boards and Committees that are lead by local volunteers. Persons interested or willing to sit on any of the following Committees and Boards should fill out the application form Application for Vacant Committee Spots and submit it to the Clerk. Once a seat becomes vacant you will be notified.

Understand what each Board and Committee’s vision, mission and purpose is and who is pushing this vision forward. All boards and committees of the town must comply with the Municipal Act and, as a result, all meetings are made public.
