Online council meetings

The City of Canning decided to shift Council meetings online as a precautionary measure to guard against the spread of Omicron.
The decision was made in response to:

1) the State Government’s updated Safe Transition Plan that takes effect from 3 March and
2) health modelling that suggests WA may see a predicted 10,000 COVID -19 cases per day by late March.

How can I join an online council meeting?

Council meetings will be livestreamed on YouTube. To watch the meeting simply visit the City’s YouTube channel here -

How can I submit a public question or deputation?

Public questions and deputations must be submitted online on the day of the council meeting by 3pm through Council Matters. Visit this web link below and select either 1) submit a question for a council meeting or 2) request a deputation to address Council.

Your questions will be read out by the Mayor with a response provided by the relevant director or the CEO via the livestream. 
When requesting a deputation to address Council, you will be required to upload the contents of your deputation at the time you complete your request.  Your deputation will be read out by the Mayor at the meeting, whilst electronic council meetings are in place.

When will the normal council meeting structure return?

The decision to return to in-person council meetings will be made in accordance with State Government health advice.
