Any personal information provided is voluntary and is obtained via email, through one of our web based forms, or through one of our secure web applications; this information is collected for the purpose of communicating with and providing services to you. Any personal information we ask you to provide is collected, used, and disclosed in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA).

Any individual who appears before Council is deemed to consent to an audio and video recording being made and to that recording being publicly available, including on the internet, on an ongoing basis. This includes an individual’s name and address, which are necessary to enable Council to properly consider and debate matters the individual speaks to. An individual who has reasonable concerns about their personal safety may, in advance of their appearance before Council, provide their name and address to Town staff at the meeting, which will be recorded but not made public and that individual may identify themselves only as a Town resident when addressing Council. Personal information collected at Council meetings, including as just described, is collected under section 26(c) of FOIPPA for the purposes of the Town’s operating programs and activities, specifically, the conduct by Council of its business. Questions about this collection may be directed to the Town’s privacy official at
