New Resource Page: Proxy Voting For Members of Council

2020-10-06 10:27:22 AM

A few weeks back, we had some of our #MunicipalExperts take part in a #LocalGovTalks webinar. The webinar on E-Meetings and Proxy Voting discussed new amendments made to the Municipal Act, 2001 and City of Toronto Act, 2006 through Bill 197, The COVID-19 Economic Recovery Act, 2020  and was a follow-up to our spring webinar on e-meetings.

Since then, we have posted two resource pages, one on e-meetings and one on proxy voting. The e-meetings page has resources, guidance materials and the spring webinar to assist members in implementing the use of e-meetings in their municipality. That webinar focuses on how to implement e-meetings from scratch. The proxy voting page contains the September webinar which talked about the lessons learned and promising practices uncovered over the last six months for e-meetings and some considerations and approaches for proxy voting for members of council as well as provincial guidance material.

In the coming weeks, the proxy voting resource page will be updated with additional materials, including a more in-depth guide, and the e-meetings resource page will also include an updated e-meetings guide, so stay tuned! Meanwhile check out the webinar recordings and the FAQs.
