Function

Planning boards provide advice and assistance under the Planning Act on matters referred by municipal councils and by the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing (in the case of a board appointed for a planning area that consists wholly or partially of territory without a municipal organization). The boards prepare official plans for these areas, and, at the request of member council(s), for municipalities. In addition to consent granting for the board's entire planning area, the board has been delegated subdivision and condominium authority, validation, foreclosures and powers of sale for lands in the Township of The Archipelago.

Membership

The board has eight members. Two members are appointed by the minister to represent the unincorporated area.

Term

The provincial appointees serve for a term specified by the minister (typically a 4-year term to coincide with municipal elections) and until a successor is appointed.

Meetings
Meetings are held the third Thursday of every month.
Remuneration

Appointees do not receive remuneration.
