Policies

Council Policies 

Council Policies are Council’s instructions to the City Manager and the organization. They set the long-term vision for the organization, establish limitations in which the City Manager can operate in, connect its governance direction to management action, and describe their role and how it fulfill its accountability to the community and itself.

In 2012, Council adopted the Policy Governance Framework which is a comprehensive set of integrated principles designed to enable accountable leadership. The framework enables Council to govern in an efficient and accountable manner by allowing Council to: 

  • focus on the larger issues;
  • rigorously evaluate the accomplishment of the organization; and
  • truly lead the organization.

Corporate Policies

Corporate Policies are instructions that City employees must adhere to when performing duties on behalf of The City. They are inward-facing in that they guide the behaviours of the internal staff, contractors, and consultants. In addition, policies are the principles that must be applied when making decisions and should apply to one or more department. 

Corporate Policies are approved by the City Manager and are maintained by Legislative Services.
