The purpose of an advisory committee is to provide informed advice and guidance to Council on programs and policies. Advisory Committees are expected to provide impartial and objective advice to Council. In so doing, these individuals shall assess, consider various options, and make recommendations to Council in a conscientious and ethical manner.

In recognition of the advisory role and lack of decision making powers, the Council Code of Conduct shall not apply to Advisory Committees but shall serve as a guide in matters of accountability and transparency. However, it is deemed desirable to establish the following general accountability, transparency and ethical standards of conduct for members of Advisory Committees of the Town of Fort Erie to ensure they are acting in a manner that is appropriate.
