How to Become a Delegation
Those wishing to be a delegation before Council must submit a written request to the Deputy Corporate Administrator's Office. This request should clearly outline the topic on which the delegation plans to speak and identify specific concerns the delegation has with regard to the topic. Please keep in mind that all written requests must be received by noon on the Wednesday immediately preceding the Monday on which the next regular Council Delegation Session is scheduled to occur.

If you are making a PowerPoint or video presentation, it is strongly recommended that you provide it to City staff the Friday before to ensure there are no technical problems.
Delegations are scheduled on non-televised Mondays, during which a more relaxed schedule allows Council to listen fully to the people who wish to present their proposal. Any recommendations made at these meetings are carried forward for ratification by Council at the next televised regular Council meeting.
A spokesperson or spokespersons are permitted to represent a group of people as a delegation providing that their full names and addresses are presented to Council prior to making their presentations.
WHAT TO EXPECT AS A DELEGATION
Each delegation has 15 minutes to make their presentation. After the presentation is made, time will be given for Council members to ask questions. For more information on how to approach Council, please consult the City of Quesnel Procedure Bylaw. A copy of this bylaw may be viewed at Quesnel City Hall with the Deputy Corporate Administrator, at 410 Kinchant Street, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
