MUNICIPAL MEETINGS

All Ontario municipal councils, boards and committees are required by law to hold open meetings, with a few exceptions. Under the Municipal Act, the public can complain when meetings are closed. The Ombudsman’s Open Meeting Law Enforcement Team (OMLET) investigates such complaints in all municipalities except those that have appointed their own investigators. Details of all of the Ombudsman’s investigations are below. To find out who the investigator is in any municipality, consult the Find Your Municipality database. For more information, see The Sunshine Law Handbook or our municipal FAQ.
