Council proceedings are the official, legal record of the decisions the City of Toronto Council makes.
- committee reports to Council
- miscellaneous additional information, such as speeches
Proceedings are in hard copy only. You must visit the Archives to see them.
Tips on Using the Council Proceedings:
- Minutes tell briefly what happened at a Council meeting. Committee reports offer much more detail about an issue, sometimes including maps, letters, historical overviews, budgets, and other information.
- Volumes of proceedings usually contain indexes. The subjects used in the index are not the same from year to year.
- If you cannot find the topic you are looking for, try:
- using a different word (e.g., “social services” instead of “welfare”)using a broader term (e.g., “TTC” instead of “Bloor subway line”)
- including the name of the municipality (e.g., “Toronto Works Department” instead of just “Works Department”).
- Proceedings are not a word-for-word transcription of the meeting (such a transcription does not exist).
- The Archives also has DVDs, videotapes, and audiotapes of some Council meetings. Please ask Archives staff to help you find these in the Archives database.
