His Worship Douglas Joyner is currently serving his second term as Mayor of the Township of West Lincoln and his second term on Niagara Regional Council.

For the two-year term (2015-2016), Councillor Joyner is extremely honoured to have been elected as Co-Chair for the Public Health and Social Services Committee, aligned to the Community Services portfolio.

Within Community Services, the Niagara Region manages and delivers a range of social programs, most of which are mandated, funded and regulated by the Provincial Government. Many services are delivered in partnership with community organizations. We pursue our mandate through four divisions:

  • Children's Services
  • Seniors Services
  • Social Assistance and Employment Opportunities
  • Homelessness Services and Community Engagement

Many of those served are among Niagara's most vulnerable.

Giving back to Niagara's 12 municipalities is not new for Mayor Joyner and he is pleased to report that he has agreed to join the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre Niagara as a Board Member. The centre is a safe place to help, heal and end child abuse for Niagara's children and youth.

As a Regional Council Liaison on the Niagara Region Accessibity Committee, Mayor Joyner sat as Chair of the Council Chamber Renovations Committee. Council Chamber was dedicated and officially re-opened April 10, 2014.

In 2012, Mayor Joyner was pleased to be awarded with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll Diamond Jubilee Medal, created to mark the 60th Anniversary of Her Majesty's accession to the Throne.

He was elected Alderman of Ward 3 for the Township of West Lincoln for the 2006-2010 term and served as Chair of the Administration, Finance, and Fire Services Committees.

He also served as Council Liaison to the West Lincoln Community Care, West Lincoln Community Improvement Project, and the Commercial Industrial Development Board, as well as serving the businesses of West Lincoln.

His community involvement includes:

  • Appointed member to the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre Niagara Board of Directors
  • Appointed member to the West Niagara Employment Help Centre Board of Directors
  • President of West Lincoln T-Ball
  • Past member of West Lincoln Chamber of Commerce
  • Being an active member of St. Martins Catholic Parish and St. Luke’s Anglican Church

In 2013, Mayor Joyner was named the Event Honorary Chair for Evan’s Ride and Family Fun Day for Autism Niagara. This incredible event is held the last Sunday in May to raise funds for children diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). For Evan, the ride symbolizes the hope, drive and passion of people impacted by ASD.

Regional Councillor Joyner is married to Barbara (RN) (nee Crawford of North Pelham) and they have three children, Rebecca, Alexander, and Dante.
