The COVID-19 pandemic has posed serious economic and social challenges for our community as a whole. Effective recovery and relief efforts require a strong, concerted approach that is informed by local governments, key organizations and subject matter experts from within our community. The Mayor's Task Force has been established as a Select Committee of Council to provide recommendations to Council with respect response and recovery efforts for both the economic and social sectors.
The recommendations of the Mayor's Task Force shall balance the community’s economic and social needs (physical, mental and social well-being) while adhering to the Province’s Medical Health Officer’s Orders and BC’s ReStart Plan.
Recommendations received by Council from the Task Force will be considered as part of the regular decision-making process of the Village of Pemberton Council. While the Task Force will provide ongoing advice and input to Council, it is not a decision-making body of government.

Mayor Mike Richman
Councillor Ryan Zant
Other members TBA - the Village has put out a call for membership applications from the public
