Meeting Agendas & Minutes

County Council utilizes a standing committee structure to facilitate the decision making process. Each standing committee meets regularly and the minutes of each committee then go forward to County Council for adoption. The standing committees are:

  • Community Development & Tourism
  • General Government Services
  • Infrastructure & Environmental Services
  • Health & Human Services

Each Councillor is appointed to sit on two of the standing committees. Committee membership is determined each year in December. The Warden sits on all committees.

The County of Dufferin also has three advisory committees made up of members of the public:

  • Joint Accessibility Advisory Committee with the Town of Orangeville - visit the Town of Orangeville website for more information
  • Dufferin County Forest Advisory Team
  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Community Advisory Committee

Agendas and minutes are available on the website for meetings dating back to January 2018. If you are looking for documents from previous meetings, please contact the Clerks Office at 519.941.2816 ext 2500 or info@dufferincounty.ca.
