Established in May of 2007, the Community Advisory Council (CAC) is an elected body of seven residents residing in Area A, B, C, and D or the University Endowment Lands (UEL), independent of the UEL administration, which promotes and develop the interests and welfare of UEL residents to make the UEL a better place to live. It consists entirely of members elected by the four Areas in the UEL in proportion to their population. The Council is independent of UEL administration and operates under a service agreement with the province.
In general, the CAC hosts an online public meeting once every month where members of the community can attend. The UEL manager will also attend the meetings. The CAC will also host an Annual General Meeting (AGM) once every year.
