For members of the media who cover City Hall on a regular basis.

The City Hall Media Accreditation process is for members of the media who cover City Hall on a regular basis. Approved applicants will receive a City Hall Media Card which provides access privileges to public Council and Committee meetings in the River Valley Room and Council Chambers.

Applications will be reviewed by the City of Edmonton. If your request is approved, a member of our team will contact you within 72 hours to coordinate pickup of your media pass.

Please review the Accreditation Process before submitting your application.
