Committee Vacancies


Applications are now being accepted for appointments as follows:

Three (3) positions on the Board of Variance. 

The Board of Variance is an independent body established by the Local Government Act and governed under Board of Variance Bylaw 4875, currently under amendment by Bylaw 5914, that allows property owners a means of addressing minor bylaw variances where compliance with land use regulations would cause undue hardship. The Board consists of volunteer community members. Terms for these positions are for three years (expiring January 2024). Board members should be prepared to attend meetings open to the public on a monthly basis; however, meetings will only be held as required, depending on applications.

Additional information related to the function of a Board of Variance in British Columbia is available on the Province of BC website (https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/governments/local-governments/planning-land-use/land-use-regulation/zoning-bylaws/board-of-variance).

* As a fundamental term and condition of employment (including volunteers) with the City of Vernon, candidates will be required to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.

If you are interested in serving the community on this Board, you may pick up a copy of the Board of Variance Bylaw and an application form at Reception at City Hall or visit our website at www.vernon.ca/council-committees.  Applications will be accepted until all three (3) positions are filled.
