Meetings of Council

Meetings of Council during the COVID-19 Pandemic 

The City of Brantford continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and take steps to help prevent the spread of infection in the community. As part of the City's response to reduce public gatherings, all Standing Committee, Committee of the Whole, Advisory Committee and Task Force meetings have been cancelled until May 31, 2020.

City Council continues to meet through electronic means in order to handle urgent and critical business of the municipality as required. Agendas will continue to be posted as they are available with proper notice being provided to the public. Due to the complexities of electronic meetings and the inclusion of the public on items requiring Statutory Public Hearings to be held, all Statutory Public Hearings are postponed until further notice in order to ensure the interest of the public is protected and the rights of citizens are maintained.

Please visit the City Council Meeting Calendar for meeting dates and agendas.
