Whitby Committee of the Whole and Town Council meetings are held on a three-week cycle in accordance with the Council and Standing Committee Meeting Calendar published annually.
Statutory Public Meetings under the Planning Act
A statutory public meeting is held under the Planning Act for certain types of planning applications, and is conducted outside of the Standing Committee and Council format. Public Meetings will be held approximately once per month with the purpose being to provide the public with information and receive submissions which can be considered and reviewed by Staff and the applicant prior to Council consideration of the application. Public meetings are open to the public and provide an opportunity for individuals in attendance at the meeting to provide feedback on the matter being discussed. More information is available on the Public Participation at Statutory Public Planning Meetings page.
Accessing Council and Committee Meetings
In an effort to make Town Council and Committee meetings more accessible for residents, the Town of Whitby is now livestreaming meetings of Council, Operations Committee and the Planning and Development Committee. When a meeting is scheduled to take place, click on the live stream icon below to access the live stream of the current meeting. Note - Meetings not held in Council Chambers will not be live streamed due to the streaming equipment only being available in Council Chambers. Additionally, Closed Sessions of Council, in accordance with section 239 of the Municipal Act, will not be live streamed.
If you are unable to view a live stream, you have the option to view archived video recordings of the meetings after they have occurred.
