Council Meetings

Council meets regularly, usually on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 5:00pm. Staying aware of discussions and decisions made at council meetings is a great way to understand what's happening in your community. Your elected leadership relies on you to tell them what's important to you.

Mayor and Council are elected for four year terms. The next election will be held in October 2026.

Have your Say!

There are many ways to participate and stay informed.

You can email or call your elected officials. You can appear as a delegation at a Council meeting. You can call the District office and speak with any of the department heads. The District of Fort St. James welcomes any comments, feedback and yes, even complaints. Hearing from you is how we know what's important to community members and business owners. This helps Mayor and Council make decisions, plan for the years to come, and stay connected.
