To keep everyone safe, the city asks members of the public to consider these points when attending a council meeting; do not attend in-person unless fully vaccinated; masks are mandatory at all times while in the building; the public must remain seated when in attendance at council meetings; and are asked to stay home or watch virtually if sick or feeling ill.

Council meetings are web-streamed live and archived from the city’s website with highlights of council meetings posted online following the meeting.

Meeting agendas can also be found on the city’s website. Comments related to the agenda can be submitted by calling 250-954-3060, or by emailing council@parksville.ca, by 9 a.m. on meeting day.

Council meetings will be held on the first and third Monday of each month, starting at 1 pm.
