Proclamations

Proclamation requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. The chair has the authority, under Bylaw No. 92, to consider approving proclamations for the CVRD provided the proclamation:

  1. is non-discriminatory;
  2. provides for an opportunity for equity in the entire community;
  3. does not involve personal opinions; and
  4. does not stimulate personal advantage or gain.

Requests for proclamation must be in writing and can be submitted via mail or email to administration@comoxvalleyrd.ca and shall include:

  • contact person's name, address and phone number
  • a brief summary and/or background of the event
  • the name and date(s) of the day, week, month, or event to be proclaimed
  • proposed text for the proclamation, including "whereas" clauses that provides context to the topic (draft language provided may be edited or rewritten at the discretion of the CVRD)
  • a date when the proclamation is needed (a minimum of three weeks' notice is requested)

Applicants will be advised of the outcome of their request once its known.
