The combined populations of the Township of Artemesia, the Township of Euphrasia, the Village of Markdale and the Township of Osprey did not exceed 25,000 according to the last enumeration. The four municipalities have entered into a contract with the Ontario Provincial Police to provide policing services. The composition of the board is determined as five. Board members include the head of the municipal council or, if the head chooses not to be a member of the board, another member of the council appointed by resolution of the council; one member of the council appointed by resolution of the council; one person appointed by resolution of the council, who is neither a member of the council nor an employee of the municipality; and two persons appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. Boards elect a chair and may elect a vice-chair. If an appointee of the Lieutenant Governor in Council is unable to serve, the Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services may appoint a replacement to serve until the Lieutenant Governor in Council selects a new appointee.

There is no limitation in legislation.
