Jan 18, 2021 - How to Speak at a Government Committee

When: Monday January 18th, 6pm

Decisions made at City Hall and the Toronto School Board affect lives across Toronto. Many of those decisions are made at committees where the public has an opportunity to speak. That's why, one way to ensure representatives and the Mayor hear our concerns is by speaking at a committee.

Speaking at a committee is also known as making a deputation. Deputations are an opportunity for you to tell the Mayor, City Councillors, and TDSB Trustees your opinions and perspectives on issues they are considering.
