District of Tofino Meetings

Remote Attendance at Council Meetings 

Quick Links: 


In order to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, the public is now invited to attend Council meetings remotely through Zoom. 

Zoom is an online resource allowing the public to attend via computer (direct link) or by downloading the Zoom App from the Google Play or Apple App Store for your smartphone or tablet.  Participants also have the option to “call in only” if you would like to listen from your telephone instead of joining online.

Please note that participants will automatically be muted and the video function will not be enabled. 

DELEGATIONS:

Delegations are able to present via Zoom only - no in-person delegations are being accepted at this time. Please sign up using the online delegation form here: www.tofino.ca/delegation-request

PUBLIC COMMENT and QUESTION PERIODS:

Once you're in the Zoom meeting, the public can use the "Q&A" feature to sign up for public input sections of the agenda. Staff will allow those who have signed up to be unmuted for up to 2 minutes, however no video will be permitted.

HOW IT WORKS:

Once you're in the Zoom meeting:

  • To sign up to speak during the Public Comment on Agenda Items section, open the Q&A window in the webinar controls from your device.
  • Click on the Ask Question tab, and type in the agenda item number you wish to speak to. Do not type your comment, only type the agenda item number you will be speaking to and the Chair will call upon you when it is your turn to speak.
  • You will be unmuted for up to two minutes, however your video function will not be permitted.'
  • Once the Public Comment period is concluded, no more comments or questions will be addressed until the Question Period is reached on the agenda.
  • At that time, if you have a question regarding an agenda item please follow the same steps by opening the Q&A window from your device, click on the Ask Question tab, and type in the agenda item number about which you would like to ask question. The Chair will call upon you when it’s your turn to speak.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  In order to fulfill the obligations of Council and to ensure a safe and secure meeting space, no comments, questions, or other interruptions of the Council proceedings will be permitted.  Disruptive participants will be removed from the meeting at the discretion of the Chair.
