Council Meetings while Under COVID-19

During the COVID-19 situation all facilities in Richmond Hill remain closed to the public. As such, and to maintain proper physical distancing measures between staff, the public and members of Council, any Council meeting or Committee meetings will be held remotely by video conference. Citizens can still access the live stream of Council meetings by going to the Richmond Hill web site home page at and hovering the mouse over the Mayor and Council tab and then clicking on the “Watch Livestream” tab.
During this time residents who want to express their view to Council must do so in writing by sending an email to
I have been supporting and encouraging staff to find a way that we might be able to accommodate live presentations by members of the public during this time, and I expect to hear about progress in this regard in the near future.
Please bear with us during this difficult time. It is always important to me to be able to facilitate all residents wanting to participate in any Council decision and this includes during these challenging times.
