Public attendance at council meetings
During the COVID-19 pandemic, council meetings are being held electronically. They continue to be conducted in public, but now can only be attended via live stream. You may observe the live stream of a 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. While meetings are being held electronically, the technology requires us to end the live stream after council passes a motion to go in camera. The live stream will only be restarted if Council considers further business after the in camera session. To help manage this, we will schedule in camera sessions at the end of the meeting whenever possible, and when the motion is made to close the meeting to the public the mayor will announce whether or not the live stream will restart.
