Internet and telephone voting

Council has approved the sole use of internet and telephone voting for the 2018 Municipal Election. Residents will now be able to cast their vote online or by telephone from anywhere they have an internet or telephone connection.

Wards and Council structure

A new ward map and Council structure has been adopted for the 2018 Municipal Election.

View the new ward boundary map

The size of Council has been reduced from 16 Councillors (elected in 16 wards) and a Mayor (elected at-large), to 8 Councillors (elected in 8 wards) and a Mayor (elected at-large). As there are less members of Council being elected, your Ward will be changing. Visit the Ward Boundaries section of our website to learn more.

Candidate Nomination Preparation

More election information will be posted on this page regarding the election, however, potential candidates may begin preparing the required paperwork (Form 1, and Form 2) for Nomination for the election.

To run for the office of mayor, councillor or school board trustee, candidates must file a prescribed Nomination Paper. Candidates cannot raise or spend any money on their campaign until this nomination paper is filed.

Nomination papers must be filed by the candidate or by an agent acting on the candidate’s behalf, in person, at the Office of the City Clerk, City Hall, during regular office hours. The nomination paper may not be faxed, mailed or emailed, as an original signature is required. If an agent of the candidate is filing the nomination paper, the form must be fully completed by the candidate prior to filing.

The candidate or the agent filing the nomination paper will be required to present proof of identity.

Candidates can begin filing their nomination papers on Tuesday, May 1, 2018, at 8:30 am.

Nomination papers can be submitted up until Friday, July 27, 2018, at 2:00 pm..

Things needed for filing:

Endorsement of nominations for mayor or councillor

At least 25 eligible electors must endorse a candidate’s nomination for the office of mayor or councillor (this is not a requirment for School Board Trustee). Individuals who provide a signature endorsing a nomination will have to sign a declaration stating they are eligible to vote in the municipality as of the day they sign the endorsement.

The endorsement declarations are to be completed on Form 2 (Endorsement of Nomination). Print multiple copies of this form to obtain the 25 required endorsements.

Filing fees

Candidates must pay a filing fee when they submit their nomination papers. These fees must be paid at the time of filing - by cash, debit, credit card, certified cheque or money order.

  •  The filing fee for a candidate running for mayor is $200.
  •  The filing fee for a candidate running for city councillor or school board trustee is $100.

Nomination filing fees are refundable if the candidate’s financial statement and auditor’s report are filed on or before Friday, March 29, 2019, at 2 pm.
