About your local government

Here's a guide to understanding the three levels of government in Canada, who's who in local government and how decisions are made.

Be informed

Learn how to keep up with what's happening in your local government by watching meetings, following the agenda, getting your own email updates and finding information about City services.

Have your say

There are many ways to make your views known to your councillor, a committee or Council. You can also participate in local polls or attend a public consultation. And most importantly, you can vote.

Serve your city

You can go the extra step and get really involved by applying to serve on a City board or even becoming a candidate in an election.
