Candidate Registration

If you are planning to run as a candidate for Mayor, Councillor, Public School Trustee or Catholic School Trustee in the 2021 Election, you must register before accepting any campaign contributions.

When you register as a candidate, your name will also be published in our online Candidate Registry, a place where voters see a list of potential candidates.
