Please note - In accordance with current Provincial Orders, scheduled Regular Council Meetings have moved to a remote format for public access – available on Citywest Cable Channel 10/310, and live streaming at www.princerupert.ca/live. Videos of the City’s Council meetings are also posted to YouTube in the days following the meeting. In the interests of public health and safety, at this time no one will be permitted into City Hall to view in the gallery, in order to ensure we can maintain physical distancing requirements. Staff and Council attendance is also limited, with most calling in via conference. Thank you for your understanding.
Regular Council Meetings are generally held on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month, unless they fall on a holiday, in which case the meeting will be held on the next business day. Regular Council meetings start 7:00 p.m., take place in Council Chambers on the second floor at City Hall, 424 3rd Avenue West, and are open to the public. On the 4th Monday of each month there will be a Committee of the Whole Meeting alongside the Regular Meeting of Council. The schedule of Regular meetings is posted, here.
Special Council Meetings are called on an as-needed basis to allow for Council to provide direction on matters that require a timely response. Twenty-four hour advanced notification of these meetings is required, with notification processes determined by the City’s Council Procedure Bylaw.
On an as needed basis, City Council may also hold Closed Meetings to discuss items as permitted by Section 90 of the Community Charter. These meetings are generally scheduled for 5:00 p.m., in advance of the scheduled Regular Council Meeting. Additional information on the different rationales for closing a meeting are available through the Provincial website, here.
