Here are a few ways to become involved in City matters.

Attend public meetings. 

The Mayor, Councillors or City staff may host public meetings to share information about a topic of particular interest to the community and to obtain public comments.    Public meetings and informal information sessions are also part of the development application review process.

Attend decision-making meetings of Council & Committee. 

Council and its committee meetings are open to the public. Everyone is welcome to attend.
