Key Points

  • This session is an opportunity for the public to learn more about the Procedure Bylaw, to understand how it works and why we have it.
  • The session will be held August 28 from 4:30-7:30 pm in the Beban Park Social Centre, 2300 Bowen Road.


"The current bylaw was adopted in 2007 and has had three amendments made using recommendations from a governance review conducted in 2013. We decided a good approach to incorporating identified areas of improvements and further recommendations from the governance review would be to completely rewrite the bylaw."
