Local government | October 11, 2016
At the recommendation of the City of Mississauga’s Governance Committee, Mississauga City Council has approved a one-year pilot project to live-stream and archive Audit Committee and Governance Committee meetings.
“Governance Committee has committed to a number of action items to become recognized as a leader in municipal governance,” said Pat Saito, Chair, Governance Committee and Ward 9 Councillor. “Mississauga was the first city in Ontario to live-stream Committee of Adjustment hearings and the number of views on all videos continues to rise. The addition of Audit Committee and Governance Committee reinforces the City’s commitment to providing an open and transparent municipal government.”
Council and General Committee, Budget Committee, Planning and Development Committee meetings and the Committee of Adjustment hearings are currently live-streamed and available as on-demand videos.
In 2015, there were a total of 13,169 views on the various Council and Committee meetings with 3,862 live views and 9,307 on-demand views.
