How do I engage in Question & Comment Period?

Question & Comment Period is held at the beginning and end of every regular Council meeting. Members of the public are encouraged to ask questions or make comments pertaining to any agenda item. You can do this by attending a meeting in person or submitting your comments online.

1. In Person

Come to a Council meeting and add your name to the Speakers List. Registered guests will have up to three minutes to engage Council (this includes time for comments as well as Council's response).   A total of 15 minutes is set aside for each Question & Comment Period. Guests will be given priority in the order in which they register.

2. Written Comments

Written comments can be submitted using this online form. In person speakers are prioritized first, followed by written submissions. If Question & Comment Period ends before your written question is addressed, your submission will be emailed to Council and any required responses will be provided via email within 3 business days.

Please read  Council Policy C107 that outlines the guidelines and protocol for the safe, respectful, and orderly administration of public engagement at Council meetings.

What is the Engagement & Priorities Committee (EPC)?

The Engagement & Priorities Committee (EPC) is a committee of the whole of Council which meets several times a year to hear about important upcoming initiatives. Past EPC topics have included Golden Ears Business Park, the RCMP autonomous detachment, the City's Official Community Plan, and the Road and Rail Improvements Project. EPC meetings are designed to create space and time for members of the public to engage in two way dialogue with City Council on these important initiatives. 

Community Engagement Protocol in General

The following guidelines will apply for those participants wishing to engage in two-way dialogue during the Engagement & Priorities Committee meetings:

  • For each agenda item, once Council and Staff have had the opportunity to discuss the topic as presented, the floor will open for community engagement, for a maximum of 30 minutes per agenda item, or otherwise at the discretion of the Chair.  
  • Each guest will have an opportunity for up to five (5) minutes of dialogue with Council.
  • Questions or comments must pertain to the current agenda item, and will not be permitted on items not yet presented or not on the agenda.

For more information on meeting protocol and how to address Council, please read  Council Policy C107.

What are Closed and Pre-Closed Meetings?

Some Council meetings are closed to the public when the subject matter being discussed relates to specific exemptions as identified in Section 90 of the Community Charter.  These meetings are preceded by a Special (Pre-Closed) Meeting which is a brief procedural meeting providing public notification that Council is about to enter into a "closed" meeting. Pre-Closed meetings are open to the public and can be viewed at City Hall.

Council Meeting Schedule

In order to create additional opportunities to manage City business prior to yearend, Council’s meeting schedule has been adjusted accordingly.
