The people we elect make decisions that impact our lives .

Voting is a right, responsibility and opportunity for Canadian citizens. Municipal elections usually produce the lowest voter turn-out of all government elections, but have the most direct impact on our community. Increasing voter turnout means better representation and a better quality of life.

If we work together as a community and increase voter turnout, then our local leadership will more closely reflect our needs.   

What is important to you?

Poverty Homelessness
Harm Reduction Mental Health Resources
Climate Change Inclusivity
Gender/Pay Equity & Decent Work Safe & Livable Neighbourhoods

Without your vote, these serious issues may not receive the level of attention they deserve from the next city council and school board trustees. Please scroll down for more resources for the municipal election.
