Council and Committees

Beginning January 1, 2021 all public sector websites and web content posted after January 1, 2012 must meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0 Level AA) as per the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).  While Northumberland County strives to make documents available online and in an accessible format, due to the large volume of Council documents created prior to January 2021 which require remediation to ensure compliance with provincial legislation, these documents, along with several large reports and studies, have been removed from our website and are now available upon request.  If you require Council agendas, minutes or by-laws from prior to 2021, or a recording from a recent virtual Council or committee meeting, please complete our Document Request Form or contact the County Clerk’s office.

Northumberland County Council is comprised of the elected mayors of each of the seven towns, townships and municipalities within its boundaries. The Warden is the head of County Council and is elected each year from amongst Council's membership.

For information including delegations to Council and petitions, please refer to the Council Procedural By-law 2020-60, and contact the County Clerk if you have any questions.
