We want residents to be aware of when City business occurs. We provide notice to the public on a variety of different matters, such as adoption of the budget, fees and charges, renaming and closure of roads, and the sale of property.

The City’s Public Notice Policy ensures the community knows how and when notices will be provided and aligns with the principles of open government.

To provide residents with a one-stop shop for most government notices we have provided links to notices published by the Region of Halton, the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada.
