Council Meetings

Please note: For the health and safety of the public, staff and Council, the public is encouraged to watch the all Open Council and Special Council meetings via the live webcast. Archived videos of the meetings are available the following day. 

Open Council meetings are held Monday evenings two times a month at 5:00 PM in Council Chambers at Burnaby City Hall, with the exception of two public meetings that are held in the community. Council meetings are not held in weeks during which a statutory holiday occurs. View the schedule.

Open Council meetings are broadcast live and are later archived. (Please note: Our video archive location has changed as of April 2019. We are currently restoring links to videos of Council Meetings from the past two years as quickly as possible.)

Council has the authority to approve any recommendations held within the report. Manager's Reports are produced by City Directors and are forwarded on to Council for approval through the Office of the City Manager. Council has the authority to approve any recommendations held within the report.
