Regional Council and Committee of the Whole Meetings

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. 

Learn about public health requirements for attending in-person meetings. Check the meeting agenda to confirm whether the meeting will be held in-person or virtually.

Meetings are broadcast live on Eastlink Community TV and on Youtube. 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. Draft minutes are available shortly after the meeting, and are updated once approved. 

Procedures for Council meetings are found in Administrative Order One. [PDF]
