City council is Montréal’s primary decision-making body. It adopts municipal budgets, by-laws, programs, subsidies and governmental agreements. Learn all about it here.
City council is composed of 65 elected officials:
- the mayor of the city, who is also mayor of Ville-Marie
- 18 borough mayors
- 46 city councillors
City council meets on the third or fourth Monday of every month. Special council meetings are also held on an occasional basis. These sessions are presided over by the council chair. Residents who wish to participate in the meetings may submit a question to elected officials or view live retransmissions at city hall.
The agenda is made available on the Friday preceding the meeting. Archived meeting agendas, minutes and official documents may be viewed online (in French).
