As an elected official, Regional Councillors have a number of responsibilities.
Councillors participate on Regional Council and Committees of the Whole (including Budget) to make decisions for Niagara Region.
Regional councillors are paid $28,353 per year, with an additional $2000 paid to chairs of our Standing Committees.
Councillors' salary is adjusted each year on Dec. 1.
Regional Council's Code of Conduct helps to ensure that members of council share a common basis for acceptable conduct in their roles as elected representatives.
To report behaviour or activity that violates the Code of Conduct, you can file a formal or informal complaint. This procedure is managed by the policies of Council, as amended from time to time.
