The Council of the City of Yellowknife is comprised of eight Councillors and one Mayor who are elected for three year terms.

Council meetings are held in the Council Chamber at City Hall on the second and fourth Monday of each month (except July, August and December) at 7:00 p.m. and are open to the public.

You can browse the Council Agendas and Minutes (current year) and Meeting Archives (past years).

Tentative 2019 Council and Committee Calendar

 Any person who wishes to speak at a City Council meeting may do so provided that notice is first given to the City Clerk's Office at 920-5602, no later than 10:00 a.m. on the Thursday preceding the Council meeting. Delegations (or presentations as they are more commonly known) pertaining to items on the agenda are heard by Council shortly after the meeting convenes. Delegations pertaining to items not at the agenda are heard generally after the business of the meeting has been dealt with. While there is no limit to the number of presentations which may be made by the public, the length of each is limited to five minutes. In the interest of time, presenters are urged to refrain from repeating the same information as previous speakers. 

The meetings of Council and its Committees are regulated by the rules contained in the Council Procedures By-law. Procedures have evolved over the years and are intended to facilitate efficient handling of Council business. The provisions of the Procedures By-law are observed both by Council and by its Committees.

The Mayor is the Chief Executive Officer of the City and is responsible for its overall operation.
