Eligible members will be residents, taxpayers, business owners or representatives in the City of Mission with the appropriate qualifications, availability, work experience, community involvement, and knowledge that can provide independent advice and assistance on the achievement of the EDSC mandate, purpose and goals.
To maintain a balanced composition of the EDSC, the committee is currently seeking specific knowledge and professional expertise within the following areas:
- Significant professional and/or senior leadership experience in one or a combination of the following three areas: land development, transportation, and industrial operations.
- Indigenous perspective expertise: preferably through lived experience as an Indigenous person with practice in relationship development with the City of Mission and/or other levels of governments, Indigenous economic development, understanding of the applicability of Aboriginal title and rights in the economic development context, and the ability to guide relationships that create economic benefits for all parties involved, including Indigenous peoples, from projects both on and off reserve.
