The Municipal Board was established under the authority of The Municipal Board Act and is charged with the duty of performing those functions assigned to it under that Act or under any other Act of the Legislature.
A number of Acts of the Legislature, in addition to The Municipal Board Act, impose duties and responsibilities upon the Board. These include:
The Board is not subject to direction by any Minister, member of the Legislative Assembly, or government official with respect to its quasi-judicial duties.
The Municipal Board is comprised of a Chair, Vice Chair, and part-time members. The part-time members are appointed by Order-in-Council.
The Board usually sits as a panel of three with a Chair and two members. Some of the members have, by Board Resolution, been appointed as Acting Chairs. Board hearings are public hearings.
