Public comments on electronic meetings during COVID-19

District of Sooke Council and Committee meetings have moved to an electronic meeting platform during the COVID-19 pandemic to support physical distancing measures. Until further notice, Council and Committee  meetings will not be physically open to members of the public.

The Province of BC issued Ministerial Order M192 on June 17, 2020, elaborating on previous ministerial orders and providing options for local governments to continue municipal business and hold meetings without in-person public attendance.

The District of Sooke believes that public participation is a fundamental tenet of democracy and leads to better informed decision-making. Council wishes to hear from the public on issues that are important to them and encourages residents to comment on upcoming agenda items.

Public question and comment opportunities:

  1. Submit written comments to Council

Should you have any concerns or comments you wish to convey to Council or a Committee regarding an item on the agenda, please submit in writing by fax to 250-642-0541, email corp@sooke.ca or in person to the Corporate Officer at the District Municipal Offices no later than noon on the day of a meeting.
