Council Meetings

Council Meetings

Council sets its meeting schedule annually, each fall, at its Organizational Meeting.  Scheduled meetings appear in the Council Calendar, shown in the listing on the right.

Council meetings may be cancelled by resolution of Council, such as in July or August or Statutory Holidays.

Special Meetings of Council are scheduled, as needed. If time permits there will be public notification and an agenda package available on the Town’s website.

Unless otherwise noted, all Council Meetings are held in the Council Chambers, located at:
    301 Centre Avenue W, Lower Level

Members of the Public are Welcome

All Council meetings are open to the public, except for scheduled Closed Session discussions.  The public is encouraged to come and see their elected officials at work.  Please refer to the "Town Council and Council Meetings (PDF)" brochure for further information.

If you would like to take an opportunity to speak directly with your elected officials, there are two (2) ways to do this at a Council meeting.  Please read the brochures "Question Period (PDF)" and "How Do I Speak with Council? (PDF)"  If you have questions remaining, please email the Legislative Services Manager or call the Town Office at 403-933-4348.

Public Hearings

Meetings may include Public Hearings. You will find the information on those rules and guidelines by following the link to the "Public Hearings Information and Process (PDF)" document.

Pecuniary Interest

Code of Conduct Bylaw

This bylaw establishes a code of conduct for members of Council, council committee and other bodies established by the Council.
