Our Board of Commissioners

The Niagara Parks Board of Commissioners is composed of up to twelve individuals who are responsible for making policy decisions, providing guidance to staff and reporting to the provincial government.  The members of the Commission are responsible and accountable to the Government of Ontario, the sole shareholder of the Commission. There are four municipal appointees, representing the Regional Municipality of Niagara, the Town of Fort Erie, the City of Niagara Falls, and the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Public appointees are members of the public who participate on the boards of provincial agencies and other public organizations. More information about public appointees, including how to apply, is available on the Government of Ontario website.
