Montréal for

Executive committee

Reporting directly to city council, the executive committee is made up of 11 members and the mayor of Montréal. It has jurisdiction over local (local services offered within city limits) and the agglomeration (service offered to entire population of the island of Montréal). The executive committee is responsible for producing documents such as budgets, bylaws, etc., which are then submitted to city council for approval.

The executive committee’s decision-making powers include granting contracts and subsidies (depending on amounts), managing human and financial resources, and buildings and purchases. City council may also delegate other powers to the executive committee.
The Direction du greffe (city clerk’s office) produces agendas and minutes for the executive committee, while meeting highlights come from the mayor’s office and the executive committee.
