Webinar: Getting to Know Saskatchewan’s Local Governments

November 9-15 is Local Government Week, a week to raise awareness and engagement in local democracy.

As part of Local Government Week, Saskatchewan’s Local Government Week Committee is offering a free virtual session for residents interested in learning more about local government in Saskatchewan.

On November 12 at 6:30 p.m., join local government representatives for an open forum where you can ask your local government questions. What exactly are local governments? What process does my local government use to make decisions?

Register for the session.
