In-Camera Council Meetings

In Camera Council meetings are also known as ‘closed meetings’. Council is only authorized to hold in-camera meetings under the circumstances set out in Section 90 of the Community Charter. Closed meetings are held to discuss and make decision on matters pertaining to personnel, land, labour or employee negotiations, law enforcement, litigation or potential litigation and information that is prohibited from disclosure under the Freedom of Information and Protective of Privacy Act. Prior to a Council closing a meeting or part of a meeting to the public, it has to state, by resolution, the fact that the meeting is to be closed, and the basis in legislation under which the meeting is to be closed. The public is not allowed to attend a closed meeting.
