The Policy Manual is a consolidation of policies that have been adopted (and in some cases, amended) by the Municipal Council of the City of London over a number of years.
This Manual does not contain detailed operating procedures for the many different services provided by Civic Departments nor does it reflect the many regulations contained in City By-laws. By-law information can be obtained from the
City Clerk's Office; information about any operating procedures that affect municipal services provided by Civic Departments can be obtained from the
Department involved. Please note that all City policies are currently under review.
