Appear Before Council or a Committee

Consulting with the public is important to Regina City Council. You have the opportunity to share your opinions and participate in the decision-making process. Your ideas help members of Council to make decisions addressing the needs of Regina residents.

You can appear as a delegation before City Council or a committee regarding an item on the agenda. In the event the item is not on the agenda, you may write a letter to the Office of the City Clerk requesting to address a committee. The Office of the City Clerk will contact you to discuss the request, or may refer the matter to a more appropriate committee of Council or City Administration.

You can contact the Office of the City Clerk to determine which committee is the proper committee to address.

To make a presentation to City Council regarding an agenda item, you must:

  1. File a written brief with the Office of the City Clerk.
    • The brief should include the request being made to City Council.
    • It should also include the full text of your presentation which can be up to 5 minutes long.  When you appear before Council you may either make the presentation submitted or provide a verbal summary of that presentation, subject to the 5 minute time limit. 
    • Submissions must be respectful and adhere to City Council's Procedure Bylaw which also provides information on proper decorum and how the proceedings are carried out.
  2. Submit the request and the brief to the Office of the City Clerk, 15th Floor, City Hall, or email to NO LATER THAN 1 p.m. on the Thursday PRIOR to the scheduled meeting.

To make a presentation to a committee regarding an agenda item, you must:

1. Attend the committee meeting. A written brief in advance is not required.

2. Complete a delegation form upon arrival.

  • The committee chairperson will call you forward when the committee deals with the item.
  • You have up to 5 minutes for your presentation, followed by any questions from committee members.
