On March 26, 2020, the Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General, Mike Farnworth, issued three ministerial orders in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including Ministerial Order M083 regarding relaxations to the rules surrounding local government meetings and to conducting business.


In response to this Order, the qRD Regional Board open meetings will be held electronically without public attendance. Directors will be able to attend in-person, visually by GoToMeeting, VOIP, or phone by calling a toll free number. Our contractor will continue to live stream meetings for the public to watch.


Delegations will be invited to attend meetings electronically through meeting platforms, VOIP, phone by calling a toll free number and will be able to present their PowerPoint or digital presentation from their screen through sharing. If this is not an option for them, qRD staff will be available to assist with facilitating the presentation.
