Where are public hearings held?
On May 1, 2020, Ministerial Order M139 under the Emergency Program Act enables local governments to hold a public hearing by means of electronic or other communication facilities.
Until further notice, the CRD will be holding all public hearings electronically in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
The date, time, and location of a public hearing will be provided in the public notice for each public hearing.
What is different about electronic public hearings?
The main difference between an in-person public hearing and an electronic public hearing is that an electronic public hearing has no physical location where the public can attend.
The CRD will be using a teleconference meeting platform, for electronic public hearings and the public can attend by phone to listen or participate in the public hearing.
Information about the proposal will be provided on the CRD webpage for the proposed bylaw for public inspection. This will include all the information that would typically be presented in a binder at an in-person public hearing, including public submissions and a copy of the bylaw.
Electronic public hearings will provide the same opportunity for interested parties to have their opinions heard.
Since there is no physical location of the public hearing, it is highly recommended that written comments are submitted in advance of the public hearing. We ask that any written submission provided during the public hearing be submitted to email@example.com.
