Position: Resident of the Pontiac Regional County Municipality
The MRC Pontiac (MRC) is launching a call for applications in order to fill the position of Resident of the Pontiac on the Agricultural Advisory Committee (AAC). This mandate is a 2-year time period (2020 and 2021) with possibility of renewal. The AAC generally meets up to four times a year. It can hold its meetings in English, in French, or in both languages, depending on its members. Its minutes are written in both languages.
The function of the AAC is to examine, at the request of the MRC Council or on its own initiative, any matter relating to agricultural land planning, the practice of agricultural activities and the environmental aspects pertaining to such planning and practice. This includes, among other things, the analysis of the planning and urbanism by-laws, as well as the review of applications for authorization, exclusion, and inclusion in the agricultural zone. A further function is to make the recommendations it considers appropriate regarding the matters it has examined to the MRC Council.
The MRC is also starting the writing of the Strategic Vision Statement for the Pontiac, which will lead to the revision of the Land Use and Development Plan and the revision of the Strategic Development Vision. These steps may require more time from the AAC.
If you have an interest in land planning, urbanism, agricultural land, and agricultural activities, we invite you to submit your application by Monday, January 6, 2020 11:59 PM Eastern Time to the attention of Alexandre Savoie-Perron by submitting a cover letter.
