Swansea Town Hall
The Swansea Town Hall is the former Village of Swansea Municipal Building, and now serves as a community resource for the benefit of the Swansea catchment area and the greater Toronto community. Swansea Town Hall has meeting space for a diversity of community programs, offers services for seniors, adults and children, is home to a number of community groups, and hosts a variety of events throughout the year.
Swansea Town Hall is one of 10 Association of Community Centres (AOCCs) centres, which are volunteer board-run multi-purpose facilities providing a broad range of community, recreation and social service programs to residents in the local community.
The AOCC model is a hybrid between a City agency and an independent not-for-profit community-based organization. The core administration activities are funded by the City and treated like a City agency. The program component is funded through fees, donations, and grants and treated like an independent not-for-profit community-based organization.
The responsibilities of the board include the following specific matters:
Term of office
The term of office is set by the board but cannot exceed four years.
The majority of board members must be residents in the centre's catchment area.
In addition to the general eligibility requirements set out in the Public Appointments Policy, community members are encouraged to elect board members who possess:
Board meetings are usually held 8 to 10 times per year on weekday evenings.
No remuneration is paid to board members.
Potential board members are elected at the Annual General Meeting of members of the Swansea Town Hall (contact the Swansea Town Hall directly for more information). The names of selected nominees are then forwarded to the Etobicoke York Community Council for appointment.
