Mayor & Council
Municipal Council is the main governing and legislative body of the District of Oak Bay and is made up of the Mayor and six (6) Councillors who are elected at large for a four-year term. Council receives input from Members of the public, staff, Advisory Bodies (i.e. Committees and Commissions), and other sources to inform governance decisions and plans.
Council meetings are generally held at 7:00 pm on the second and fourth Mondays of each month, with Committee of the Whole scheduled for 7:00 pm on the third Monday of the month. This schedule may vary, however, and it is advisable to check the municipal calendar or contact the office of the Director of Corporate Services to ascertain the date and agenda for any meeting you may wish to attend. Agendas for all Council and Committee meetings are posted each Friday afternoon on the website, on notice boards at the Municipal Hall and at the Kiosk adjacent to Athlone Court on Oak Bay Avenue.
As local government representatives in a small community, you will find your members of Council easy to approach: individual contact information can be found in the Mayor and Council Profiles. In addition, in 2017 Oak Bay Council completed and implemented a policy regarding Council Code of Ethics. This policy outlines expectations or behaviour and actions of Council members towards each other, the public and District staff, and serves as a guide for decision-making.
