  • Who: All members of the public are welcome to attend City Council meetings. To attend as a delegate, view more information here.

Archived meeting minutes are available here, with archived live-steams from videos available here.

City Council is also divided into several committees that meet regularly. These committees include:

  • Infrastructure and Protective Services
  • Community Living
  • Corporate Services

View a schedule for these meetings here.

Council Committee of the Whole is another meeting that takes place, occurring several times a year. This meeting is intended for Council to discuss issues in a less formal setting before they are presented at City Council meetings and a formal direction is finalized.

Guiding all the decision making at the City is Council's Strategic Plan and Strategic Priorities.
