This report sets out the procedure for the election by the Committee of the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Audit Committee for the term ending December 31, 2017.

The Procedure By-law provides that a Member of the Committee shall be appointed annually by the Committee to serve as Chair of the Audit Committee.  As well, a Vice-Chair is appointed annually.

The above appointments need only be confirmed by resolution.


The Chair of the Audit Committee is paid $2,061.65 per annum.


The selection of the Chair and Vice-Chair is to be conducted in accordance with Articles 33 and 37 of the Procedure By-law.

Council's procedure requires that in the event more than one (1) candidate is nominated for either the Chair or Vice-Chair's position, a simultaneous recorded vote shall be used to select the Chair and Vice-Chair.

It is always in order for a Member of Council to nominate themselves and to vote for themselves.  Under Robert's Rules of Order a nomination does not need a second.

Once the successful candidates have been selected, a recommendation will be introduced.
