The Laval City Council is the governing body in the mayor–council government in the city of Laval, Quebec, Canada. It is composed of the mayor and 21 councillors. They are elected to four year terms with the next election scheduled for November 2013. Statutory meetings are held on the first Monday of each month.

Sectors[edit]

Currently[when?] the city is divided into six sectors (secteurs in French) which only approximately cover the territories of the former municipalities. They are:

The former city of Fabreville was divided among two sectors.

Current Laval City Council[edit]

All 21 councillors were formerly associated with the Parti PRO des Lavallois, the municipal political party of mayor Gilles Vaillancourt.[1] Following Vaillancourt's resignation as mayor on November 9, 2012,[2] the councillors voted to dissolve the party on November 19 and now sit as independents.[1]

Following Vaillancourt's resignation, councillor Basile Angelopoulos served as the city's acting mayor[3] until council selected Alexandre Duplessis, the former councillor for District 15 (Saint-Martin), as the new mayor on November 23.[4] Angelopoulos again undertook the responsibilities of pro-mayor upon Duplessis' resignation on June 28, 2013 until Martine Beaugrand, the former councillor for District 20 (Fabreville) was acclaimed as the city's new mayor on July 3, 2013.
