Corporate Policies

​Corporate Policies 

Summary: A policy is defined as corporate direction that is formally adopted by Council resolution. A Corporate Policy is created when Council’s position on an issue should be part of the public record, in keeping with open and accountable government.​ Enacting policies provides a framework for decision making ensuring consistency throughout the municipality. The authority for policy development is identified within provisions of the Municipal Act (or other legislation). It specifically provides Council the authority to develop and evaluat​​e the policies and programs of the municipality. The policies listed below make up a condensed list of Council approved policies currently in place. Many are being updated or re-formatted and will b​e published as they are completed. ​​
