The Ottawa City Council (French: Conseil municipal d'Ottawa) is the governing body of the City of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is composed of 23 city councillors and the mayor. The mayor is elected at large, while each of the councillors represent wards throughout the city. Council members are elected to four year terms with the last election being on October 22, 2018. The council meets at Ottawa City Hall in downtown Ottawa. Much of the council's work is done in the standing committees made up sub-groups of councillors. The decisions made in these committees are presented to the full council and voted upon.
