Next Council Meeting
On behalf of myself and Victoria County councillors, I would like to thank each and everyone of you. The COVID-19 global pandemic has clearly changed the way we live our lives. Council commends Victoria County medical professionals, our doctors and nurses; our front-line grocery store workers and pharmacies staff, our janitorial and cleaning crews and others deemed essential by the province. These people are putting themselves at risk so that we can live in health. Finally, thanks to our own municipal staff– from on-site Public Works staff and garbage collections crews to water utility operators and administration personnel, all are working hard to keep the municipality running in these extraordinary circumstances. Sincerely, Warden Bruce Morrison & Victoria County Councillors

Victoria County Council is now on-line for you to watch and participate. Each Victoria County Council Session is live streamed on our Facebook Page. You can find the schedule of Council meetings here, and tune in to Facebook on the day of Council to watch the proceedings live. With Covid -19 changing the way things are done, Victoria County Council has adapted to continue to meet and discuss the needs and concerns of the county residents. Depending on provincial gathering regulations, these meetings will either be held:
1) In person at council chambers with distancing and limited public seating
2) On-line meeting held via the Zoom meeting platform.
Both versions of Council Meetings will be live-streamed for public inclusion. Should you wish to find out more about Council Meetings and how you can connect with or participate in council sessions, please contact our Communications Officer, Jocelyn Bethune.
