Request to Address Council

COVID-19 Update:

Following updated guidance issued on September 10, 2021, there is a maximum allowable capacity for public in-person participation permitted in the Council Chamber for Council meetings  under the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) Order on Gatherings and Events. 

We continue to encourage public participation via telephone or pre-recorded video during COVID-19 to assist in limiting contact with others. This is also the most efficient way to speak to Council. 

Masks are mandatory for people ages five and up in all indoor public spaces, even if you are vaccinated, until further notice. 

Staff will respond to your form submission with further details. 

Meetings can be viewed on the City’s live stream webcast.
