The Board of Examiners is a statutory body established under the Local Government Act. The three-member Board is appointed by Cabinet with a nominee from the LGMA, the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM), and the Ministry of Community Services.
The Board recognizes and supports the work of British Columbia's local government employees. Its principal goal is to improve the professional skills of local government employees through its certification program, and by issuing scholarship awards to eligible employees who wish to work towards certification or upgrade their professional skills.
