Election Calendar



Oct 24 Election Day!



In order to be eligible to vote in an election, a person must be:

  • a Canadian citizen;
  • 18 years of age on Election Day; and
  • a resident of the local authority for at least six months on Election Day (as of April 24, 2018).


The following rules apply to determine the residency of a person:

  • a person is a resident of the place where he/she has his/her ordinary residence, and to which he/she intends to return when away from it
  • a person may be a resident of only one place at a time
  • a person does not change residence until he/she has a new residence


A person who leaves a municipality for temporary reasons is still considered a resident voter. For example, a student attending university or college outside of the municipality, but who intends to return home after the term ends, is considered a resident voter.


If a person has no fixed address in the local authority, he/she is deemed to reside at the shelter, hostel or other similar institution that most frequently provides lodging, food or other social services.



For municipal elections only (excludes school division elections), non-resident land owners are eligible to vote in an election. In order to be eligible, the person must be:

  • a Canadian citizen;
  • 18 years of age on Election Day;
  • a registered land owner in the municipality for at least six months on Election Day (as of April 24, 2018).


A maximum of two non-resident property owners, per property, are permitted to vote in a municipal election. In order to vote, each of these voters must obtain written consent from a majority of the registered landowners, and file this with the Senior Election Official.
