Bill 197 received Royal Assent on July 21, 2020 as the COVID-19 Economic Recovery Act, 2020. Among other things, Bill 197 amended both the City of Toronto Act, 2006 and the Municipal Act, 2001 to allow members of a council, local board or a committee of either of them to participate electronically in meetings – without the need for the physical presence of any member at a particular location. In this presentation these changes will be discussed with an emphasis on their impact on committees of adjustment and consent granting authorities.
