2018 Elections

 

Municipal elections are held every four years to elect a Mayor, eight Councillors and five School Trustees. Those elected on October 20, 2018 will serve in office for four years.

General local elections (and by-elections) are the most direct way for the public to influence their local government, school district or other local governance body by determining the individuals who then make decisions and govern on their behalf following general voting day.
