Municipal Elections  
Municipal elections are held every 4 years. Voting is a democratic right, as well, as a responsibility for all Canadian citizens. By voting you get to exercise your right and show your support for candidates who share your vision for your community and neighbourhood.
Who can vote in the elections?
You can vote in a municipal election if, on the day of the election, you are:
  • A Canadian citizen
  • At least 18 years old
  • Live in the municipality, own or rent land in the municipality, or are married to someone who owns or rents land in the municipality. ​
What if you are not a citizen yet?
Every resident is affected by the outcome of the municipal election, even those who can't vote. Newcomers who aren't eligible to vote this year can still get involved. For example, if you find a candidate you would like to support, you can campaign on their behalf. You could go door-to-door to raise awareness about the candidate, volunteer to work in their campaign office, or work to raise funds to help their campaign. You can also get more involved in the municipal elections by becoming an election worker.​
