Description and Purpose

The Naming Committee approves names for municipal facilities, new neighbourhoods, parks, and roads. This involves input from both City administration and citizens.

  • Researching names
  • Maintaining an inventory of names to be used in the future
  • Receiving requests from the public for names to be honoured
  • ​Creating and providing agendas to the Committee

Information about Serving on the Committee

Online applications to fill Committee vacancies are accepted in the annual December/January Recruitment Campaign.


The Naming Committee typically meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 4:15pm. For past agendas and minutes, please contact the Naming Committee Administration.
