CRCA Full Authority Board

A Conservation Authority is managed by board members appointed by the municipal governments within its area. Board members can either be council or citizen appointees.  It is the board members responsibility to represent the views of the citizens within their respective municipalities. In this way, local input into the activities, operations and projects of the Authority is provided.

Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority has 17 members appointed by the councils of the 11 municipalities that lie either wholly or partly within the watershed. An Annual General Meeting of the Full Authority Board is held in January of each year.  The Full Authority Board typcially meets the fourth Wednesday of every month with the exception of July and November in 2020.

From time to time, CRCA sets up special sub-committees to study specific issues and provide recommendations to the Board.
