Public attendance at council meetings
Council meetings are held in person at the Canmore Civic Centre and are open to the public. Meetings also livestreamed through our Live Webcast.

Occasionally, all or a portion of a council meeting may be closed to the public to prevent disclosure of information protected by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. This is known as "in camera." Whenever possible, in camera items are identified in the meeting agenda package published prior to the meeting. When Council goes in camera, any members of the public present in the Council Chamber must leave the room and the livestream is suspended. In camera sessions are typically the last item on a council agenda, and when the motion is made to close the meeting to the public the mayor will announce whether or not the live stream will restart.
