Metro Vancouver's Regional Employers Services is governed by
Greater Vancouver Regional District Bylaw 1182.
In 2013, Bylaw 1182 was approved by Metro Vancouver's Board, positioning Regional Employers Services as a service-oriented organization. When Bylaw 1182 was established, the service transitioned from a regulatory function to a service-oriented function, with increased autonomy for members as well as regional coordination on matters of importance to the region.
In addition, the Bylaw established that information and advisory services (formerly "Base Services") are provided to all member municipalities as part of their membership. Collective bargaining services and compensation services are offered on an optional, fee-for-service basis.
RES reports to the Regional Administrative Advisory Committee (RAAC), which is comprised of the Chief Administrative Officers or City Managers from Metro Vancouver's local governments. The Director of Regional Employers Services provides updates to the Regional Administrative Advisory Committee and the Metro Vancouver Mayors Committee on regionally significant human resources and labour relations issues.
The Human Resource Advisory Committee is a standing committee of the RAAC, composed of senior Human Resource leaders from all of the municipalities within the Metro Vancouver region. It meets on a monthly basis to share information and collaborate on issues of common regional concern.
