Closed Session (In Camera)
Meeting Investigation

Under the Municipal Act, 2001, as amended, a meeting can be closed to the public pursuant to Section 239. Council may close a meeting to consider any of the following:

  • The security of the property of the municipality or local board
  • Personal matters about an identifiable individual, including municipal or local board employees
  • A proposed or pending acquisition or disposition of land by the municipality or local board
  • Labour relations or employee negotiations
  • Litigation or potential litigation, including matters before administrative tribunals, affecting a municipality or local board
  • Advice that is subject to solicitor-client privilege, including communications necessary for that purpose
  • A matter in respect of which a council, board, committee or other body may hold a closed meeting under another Act

A member of the public can request an investigation of a Closed Session Meeting (Section 239.1 and 239.2), if they feel a meeting was closed improperly.

The Region of Peel has, under Council Resolution 2007-1541, entered into an agreement with Local Authority Services (LAS) to conduct Closed Sessions investigations.

Requests should be directed to the Office of the Regional Clerk at 905-791-7800, ext. 4545 or to the Regional Clerk.
