The role of the Community Partnership Committee is to assist Council in its decision making role by ensuring that Council receives thoughtful and comprehensive advice from a well represented group of individuals from the community with unique skills and knowledge specific to the mandate of this Committee.
The Committee makes recommendations to Council on applications for grants-in-aid and permissive tax exemptions. Working in the best interests of all Campbell River residents, the Committee explores ways that community partnership funding can best meet the needs of a growing community.
The Community Partnership program is designed to support community groups with the delivery of major events and/or services. These groups assist the City in fulfilling the principle and objective of promoting a dynamic arts and cultural community, and the promotion of a positive community.
