Public attendance at council meetings
Council meetings are held in the council chamber at the Town of Canmore Civic Centre (902 7th Avenue). Council meetings are conducted in public. You may observe a meeting in person, or view a live stream of the meeting here.
Occasionally, all or a portion of a council meeting may be closed to the public to prevent disclosure of information protected by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. This is known as "in camera." Whenever possible, in camera items will be identified in meeting agenda packages published prior to the meetings. Members of the public will be asked to leave the council chamber during discussion of an in camera item and the video streaming will not be available.
