Upcoming City Council meetings

How decisions are made

Council and Committee of the Whole meetings are held in accordance with the

Council & Committees Procedural By-law BL 51-2021. Members of City Council participate in Committee of the Whole meetings to examine and review corporate reports and recommendations from administration. Each month, Committee of the Whole sessions are held for:

  • Community Services
  • Planning
  • Operations
  • Administrative Services

Members of Council, by resolution, make decisions out of Committee of the Whole meetings and then they are ratified at City Council meetings. Other committees are established by Council to undertake statutory responsibilities as delegated by Council or to implement policies approved by Council including:

  • Committee of Adjustment
  • Heritage Advisory Committee
  • Ad Hoc Advisory Committees as approved at the discretion of Council to review a specific issue within a specified timeframe
