What do committees do?

Most meaningful legislative activity happens in committee meetings, where committee members debate proposed legislation. These meetings are open to the public. Unlike City Council meetings, committee meetings allow for public presentations.

Each committee has a Chair. Along with the City Clerk, the Chair shapes the committee meeting agenda (and thus, the legislation to be considered).

Committee jurisdiction, memberships, and appointments all require City Council approval.

Toronto City Council is currently composed of 59 Committees.
