Council

York Regional Council has 21 members. Council sets policies, direction and budgets for York Region.

Members of York Regional Council are elected in what is known as a "double direct" form of election. In this type of system, those elected as Mayor or Regional Councillor for a local municipality earn a seat on both Local Council and Regional Council for four years.

The Chair of Regional Council is elected by members of Regional Council at the first meeting of the term and also serves for a four year term.

Most of Council's work is done through the Committee of the Whole. During Committee of the Whole meetings, members get public input, review policies and consider staff reports before making recommendations to Regional Council.

Council usually meets on the third Thursday of each month at 9:30 a.m. For the official Council and Committee meeting dates please see the Events Calendar
