Community Forum

The Minister for Canterbury Earthquake Recovery must arrange for a community forum to be held, under section 6 of the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Act 2011, for the purpose of providing him with information or advice on earthquake recovery matters.

Under the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Act, the forum must consist of at least 20 members and meet at least six times a year.

The Community Forum consists of 24 members from a wide cross-section of the Canterbury community representing business and ethnic interests, as well as residents associations and groups.

The Minister also holds regular briefings with local elected representatives, including community board members, councillors and district health board members, in Canterbury to discuss progress on recovery.
