There are also three community representatives currently, whose terms are up for renewal this spring.

The role of council members is to provide direction and oversight for its water quality and safe boating and recreation programs. The diverse membership of the watershed council enables input and perspectives from various organizations and jurisdictions across the Shuswap watershed.

“Applicants should live or work in the Shuswap, have a keen interest in water quality and safe boating, and have a solid track record of working with committees,” says Erin Vieira, program manager for the Shuswap Watershed Council.

Anyone interested in applying for a community representative position is invited to go to www.shuswapwater.ca to learn more about the role, and fill out an Expression of Interest form.
