Vancouver City Council is the governing body of the City of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The council consists of the mayor plus ten councillors elected to serve a four-year term. The current council was determined by the 2018 civic election. Monthly, a deputy mayor is appointed from among the councillors. The current mayor is Kennedy Stewart, who sits as an independent.

The most recent election was on October 20, 2018. Unlike many other cities of its size, all Vancouver city councillors are elected at-large, rather than being elected to represent municipal wards.[1] A proposal to move to a conventional ward system was rejected by voters in a 2004 referendum.[2]

Powers

The city is governed by the Vancouver Charter.[3] The charter gives the city greater powers than those of other municipalities in British Columbia.

Powers of the Vancouver council include:[4]

  • pass by-laws to regulate such things as noise and land use
  • buy and sell property
  • collect certain taxes
  • approve expenditures
  • take on debts
  • give grants
  • hire and discharge employees

City council sits at City Hall at 453 West 12th Avenue.
