City Council Inaugural Meeting


Close to 700 Londoners welcomed our 2018-2022 City Council at its inaugural meeting on December 3, 2018. Held at the London Convention Centre, the meeting featured a piper, the London Police Colour Guard, and jazz trio Between the Keys led the National Anthem.

Mayor Ed Holder and the City's 14 ward councillors each took their oath of office in a formal swearing in ceremony, followed by the City Council meeting. The first order of business was to elect Councillor Jesse Helmer as Deputy Mayor, an office he will hold until November 30, 2020.
