Regional Council is the main decision-making body for Halifax Regional Municipality. Find out what’s happening at the meetings and learn how you can participate.
Due to COVID-19, Regional Council meetings are currently being held virtually, on select Tuesdays. Meetings are broadcast live on Eastlink Community TV and on halifax.ca. The only time meetings are not open to the public is when private and confidential information is being discussed in an “in camera” session.
Regional Council normally meets bi-weekly on select Tuesdays; check the calendar below to see the schedule. Committee of the Whole meetings are scheduled as required. The start time for the meetings varies and is noted on each meeting’s agenda which is available by noon on the Friday prior to the meeting date.
You can find agendas, minutes, and reports online. You can also search for records of Regional Council meetings.
Council agendas and reports are available by noon on the Friday prior to the meeting date. Archived video is available by the Friday after the meeting. Minutes are available once approved—usually four weeks after the meeting date.
Procedures for Council meetings are found in Administrative Order One. [PDF]
You can get more meeting-related information via the Routine Disclosure Plan for the Chief Administrative Officer's (CAO's) Office.
