Council and Committee meetings
Council and its committee meetings are open to the public. Everyone is welcome to attend, and you don't need to register in advance.
Public Question Period
There is a 15 minute Public Question Period at the end of every Council and Committee meeting. During this time, anyone attending the meeting can ask about decisions and recommendations made during the meeting. A Member of Council or staff will immediately answer your question, or, if necessary, will provide you with information after the meeting.
Delegtations at Council Meetings
Once you receive permission, the City Clerk will schedule a date for you to speak at a committee meeting. At these committee meetings, the committee hears from the public, asks questions, receives advice from staff and experts, discusses issues, and develops recommendations for approval at a regular Council meeting.
