Council Meetings

Council follows a meeting agenda, and often has guest presenters. If you would like to be on the agenda of a Council meeting, please contact Abe Tinney in writing at admin@id4waterton.ca at least two weeks prior to the meeting. Council meets semi-monthly on the third Friday, but please check the website or contact Abe Tinney to confirm. From time to time the meetings have to be rescheduled.

If you are scheduled to make a presentation at a council meeting and you require IT and/or audio visual support, please make arrangements well in advance of the meeting through Maria Robinson at the WCC. She can be reached at (403)859-2042 or at maria.m.wpca@gmail.com.  The community centre has equipment which can be used, but it must be reserved in advance, as Maria is not in the office every day. On meeting day, please make all necessary arrangements to have equipment set up prior the commencement of the meeting. Council meets regularly the third Friday of alternate months beginning in January If You Attend
You are most welcome to attend regular Council meetings. You may have questions or comments. After Council concludes their presentations and discussions for each agenda item, and if time allows, the Chairman will ask for questions from the floor. If the questions are for an invited guest, the Chairman will ask the guest if they wish to take questions. The acoustics are poor in the meeting rooms of the Community Centre, so being quiet and turning off devices is very important. Waterton is a global treasure that enjoys a unique, triple distinction:
• International Peace Park
• UNESCO World Heritage Site
• UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Today Waterton remains a spectacular natural wonder – a blend of unusual geology, mild climate, rare wild flowers and an abundance of wildlife. Waterton offers an “all natural” experience like no other place in the world.
This is due in large part to the people who live here that have worked to preserve and maintain its magnificence. We are passionate about our community, our wildlife, the glorious mountains and vegetation that surround us. We think you will share that passion from the moment you arrive.
