Moving Forward with Governance Reform

St. Catharines Council, Double Direct

St. Catharines City Council is looking to change the way it elects regional councillors for the 2018 municipal election. The double-direct model recommended will have 6 city councillors also serve on regional council, filling a dual-councillor role. Watch this video to learn why this change matters and how it will improve communication, transparency and accountability between city and regional governance.

Tell us what you think about this proposal by filling out a short online survey, or attend a public meeting at Regional Council on Thursday Sept. 15 at 6:30 pm.
