Petition Process

We value your input

A petition is a way for you, your neighbours and fellow community members to share concerns or issues with council. Once received, it will be presented to council.

If you want to submit a petition to the council or a committee, your request must:

  • address the council or a committee
  • state the matter you're supporting or opposing on each page of the document
  • contain the printed names, addresses and signatures of the petitioners
  • be received by the Legislative Services' office by Tuesday at noon, before the council or committee meeting
  • be legible and use respectful language

You'll need to submit the original pages of the petition by mail.

Public record information

Once you submit correspondence to us, it becomes part of the public record. It will be published once your matter or issue is before the council or a committee. We will also disclose your address as part of this record.
