How to Watch Council Meetings during the COVID-19 Pandemic

With the municipal building being closed at this time, the public is not permitted to attend meetings in the Council Chambers. However, the Township of Manitouwadge has access to Council Meetings via online live streaming and past recorded meetings!

The Township is taking this action to ensure we can continue to offer residents access to municipal meetings, while taking steps to protect our community members, staff and Council.

The live streaming will begin shortly before the Council meeting and there may be a delay before the live stream is uploaded permanently to our Youtube Channel for watching after the meetings. Please keep in mind that we do experience technical difficulties from time to time and we continue to strive in improving this service.
