Before you search

  • Determine what you're looking for.

  • Too few words may give poor results.
  • The search box accepts up to 32 words.
  • For example, if looking for a secondary suite item in a 2016 council meeting enter: "council 2016 secondary suite"

Search conventions

  • Keywords may be entered in lower or upper case or a combination of both. Math, math, MATH
  • Exception: Boolean operator OR, must be in CAPS

  • Search ignores most punctuation and symbols. Exceptions:
    • Dollar sign when used to indicate price.
