Council Meetings, Public Hearings & committee meetings closed to public to prevent the spread of COVID-19

Dec 5, 2020

Effective immediately and until further notice, the public is now prohibited from attending all local government meetings in person.

The December 2 order from the Provincial Health Officer prohibits public attendance at Council meetings, public hearings and committee meetings. On Friday, December 4, the District received an email from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs clarifying that the December 2, 2020, Provincial Health Officer order on gatherings and events was amended and now requires local governments to prohibit the public from attending all Council meetings, public hearings and committee meetings in person. 

The District of West Vancouver provides electronic access to view meetings and phone in opportunities for the public. To learn more about how to participate in the December 7 Council meeting from the safety of your own home, please visit the Council Calendar.
