Complaint procedure

If behaviour or activity by a member of council that you believe contravenes the Code of Conduct, you can submit a complaint. Review our Complaint Procedure for full details about how to file a formal or information complaint.

Informal complaints

You may wish to address this action or behaviour in an informal manner. For example, you can reach out directly to the council member and:

We recommend that you keep a written record of the incident(s) including:

  • Dates
  • Times
  • Locations
  • List of individuals present

If you choose to file a formal complaint later, you will have a clearly documented incident. We encourage you to make an information complaint as a way to resolve the matter. However, an informal complaint is not required in order to file a formal complaint.
