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:
- 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.
- Submit the request and the brief to the Office of the City Clerk, 15th Floor, City Hall, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
