In accordance with the Municipal Act, a municipality shall appoint a clerk whose duty it is:

  • to record, without note or comment, all resolutions, decisions and other proceedings of the council;
  • if required by any member present at a vote, to record the name and vote of every member voting on any matter or question; 
  • to keep the originals or copies of all by-laws and of all minutes of the proceedings of the council;
  • to perform the other duties required under this Act or under any other Act; and
  • to perform such other duties as are assigned by the municipality.

This department also oversees licensing and vital statistics functions for the corporation, which are administered by the Licensing Officer (see licensing department for contact information), and oversees crossing guards and accessible customer service.

Town Clerk is Ms. Kerry Costello - 613-283-4124 ext. 1102
