Members of the public who wish to make a presentation before a Standing Committee and/or Council are called delegations. There are 2 Standing Committees, the Executive Committee and the Planning & Development Committee. We encourage delegates to appear before a Standing Committee before addressing Council.

Persons who wish to speak to an item that is on an agenda are to register in writing with the City Clerk by 12:00 noon on the meeting date. All delegations for items not listed on an agenda shall register ten (10) days prior to the meeting date. Delegations that are not registered in writing by the timelines noted shall only be heard at a meeting if permitted by a two-thirds majority vote of Council Members present at the meeting.

A maximum of 10 minutes shall be allotted for each delegation to present his/her/their position at a meeting.  

Register to be a delegate by submitting a Delegation Form.

If you have any questions regarding delegation status, please contact the Clerk's Office at 905.420.4611.
