Regular Council Meetings

Council meetings in Esquimalt are held on the first and third Monday of every month, unless the meeting falls on a statutory holiday. 

Council meetings are open to the public unless Council passes a resolution to go In Camera to deal with issues of a confidential nature, usually related to finances, personnel, property or legal matters. 

Committee of the Whole Meetings

  • discuss long-term planning and policy development issues
  • discuss complex administration, finance, zoning, and land development issues
  • consider other matters in depth
  • provide a less formal forum for public input on matters placed before the Committee  

Recommendations from the Committee of the Whole are referred to a regular Council meeting before any decisions are made.
