We know our region is diverse, and we want the Public Advisory Committee (PAC) to represent that. That’s why our membership includes a variety of unique perspectives, including across age, gender, ethnicity and expertise. For example, we have committed to including the following voices:
- At least one PAC member, 25 or younger, to ensure we include a youth perspective
- Representation from the local Indigenous community
- Those with experience in environmental and safety compliance
- A member of the community with direct community involvement experience
The PAC can also appoint additional members based on a need for specific expertise, should a concern or issue require it.
And importantly, while we want to include as many voices as possible, we want to keep the PAC to an appropriate number to ensure everyone can contribute.
