Want to Invite the Burlington Mayor to an Event? Use this Online Form

STOCK_Mayor Office_Interior

My office recently revamped and streamlined the way you can invite me to attend or speak at an event and other requests that typically come to the Mayor’s Office. This was done to help us better understand your request or the event you’re associated with and my ability to participate.

Head to the “Invite the Mayor” page online, on the City of Burlington’s website, via this link:

On that page, you’ll be asked to provide your contact information and all required details below as accurately as possible. As my calendar is often booked up to 8 weeks in advance, not all requests can be accommodated, though I and my staff will always try our best.

If you are looking to request a proclamation, flag raising or congratulatory letter, whether in relation to your event or on its own, there are designated links for each on the webpage. If you’re looking for a simply event invitation, then just click the “Continue” button at the bottom of the page.

In the event I cannot attend, my office will work with the Deputy Mayor and/or the Ward Councillor to make sure representation from the City of Burlington is available.


Streamlining this process is the perfect way to get you a speedier response to your requests from my office and eliminate back and forth emails if more details or information is needed.

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
