North Middlesex Council Procedure By-Law
- The Procedure by-law governs the calling, place and proceedings of meetings.
- The procedure by-law also provides for public notice of meetings.
Disclosures of Pecuniary Interest
The Municipal Conflict of Interest Act requires Members of Council to declare any direct or indirect pecuniary interest in relation to a matter under consideration. A pecuniary interest in a matter is one where there is a reasonable likelihood or expectation of financial loss or gain of the Member or related persons as per the Act. The onus is on the member to determine whether they are affected by the pecuniary interest provisions. All members must submit their disclosures of pecuniary interest in writing to the Clerk immediately following the meeting during which they verbally disclose a pecuniary interest using the Disclosure of Pecuniary Interest Form.
Changes to the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act require municipalities to maintain a registry of all declarations made under this Act, as of March 1, 2019. The registry must include the original written declaration provided by the member of Council and must be available to the public.
The registry will be available by following the link below and will be updated following a Council meeting where an interest is declared. If you wish to view a specific Declaration Statement, or if you require an alternate format, please contact the Clerk’s Office at 519-294-6244 ext. 224.
Additional details can be obtained from the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act. R.S.O. 1990, c.M.50.

Historical Council Minutes
In 2021, the Municipality of North Middlesex launched a new website. As a result of the new website, a new platform was also required for Council Agendas which you can access at the top of this page. The new Agendas contain attachments not only for Regular Council Business but also include Planning Applications and Drainage Matters brought before Council. Transferring of documents that were contained on the old website is not available on the new website however we have uploaded some previous Council Minutes.
If you are looking for a specific item of business that you cannot find on the new website please reach out to the Clerks Office for assistance. We will do our best to accommodate your request in a timely manner.
