Note: during the COVID-19 crisis, we have alternative means for the public to offer input. Please contact [email protected] or call 250-414-7100 for details. As usual, you may email feedback for council's consideration at any time. 

Council meetings are scheduled twice a month on the first and third Monday of each month. They begin at 7 p.m. unless otherwise posted.

The Committee of the Whole (same Council members) meets once a month on the second Monday of each month to discuss in-depth matters including long-term planning and policy development issues. The meetings begin at 7 p.m.  Recommendations from the Committee of the Whole are referred to a regular Council meeting before any decisions are made. 

From time to time it is necessary to schedule Special meetings for matters that are time sensitive.
