The role of the Animal Welfare Advisory Committee is to initiate and provide recommendations, advice and information to the Municipal Council through the Community and Protective Services Committee.
The Animal Welfare Advisory Committee reports to the Municipal Council through the Community and Protective Services Committee. The mandate of the Animal Welfare Advisory Committee is to advise the Municipal Council on issues relating to animal welfare within the City of London by conducting research, reporting on findings and making recommendations to the Municipal Council on issues relating to animal welfare for domestic animals, urban wildlife and animals for use in entertainment. Farm animals do not, however, fall within the mandate of the Animal Welfare Advisory Committee.
The Animal Welfare Advisory Committe currently meet once a month on the 1st Thursday at 5:00 p.m.
The personal information contained in communications directed to City Council and its standing and advisory committees is collected under the authority of the Municipal Act, 2001 as amended and will be used to assist Council and Committee Members in their deliberations.
