This document was prepared by the Ministry of Communities with assistance from the
Caribbean Local Economic Development Project (CARILED) with financial support of
The Government of Canada.
This handbook contains critical information and you (councillors and administrative
staff) are urged to read it and make use of it; it will assist you in making your work more
effective. Whether you are a constituency councillor or a PR councillor, I
urge you to take ownership of your area, which is the role the Constitution
provides for you. In this quest you will find an ally in me, the Ministry of
Communities and the Government of Guyana.
