Candidate Information

Nominations

Nominations may be filed in person or by an agent with the Office of the Clerk beginning on Monday, May 2, 2022 until Thursday, August 18, 2022, during regular business hours (Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) and on Nomination Day, Friday, August 19, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

In accordance with the Municipal Elections Act, nominations must be filed using the prescribed forms, accompanied by the prescribed nomination filing fee and nominations for an office on a council must be endorsed by at least 25 persons. The filing fee is $200.00 for the office of Mayor and $100.00 for all other offices. The filing fee is payable by cash, debit, certified cheque or money order.

If a nomination for a candidate is filed by an agent, a letter must be submitted at the time of filing which authorizes the agent to file on behalf of the candidate. The letter must be signed by the candidate, and commissioned or notarized by a person authorized under the Commissioners for Taking Affidavits Act or Notaries Act. In addition to this letter, an agent must also provide a copy of the candidate's ID to be retained on file.

No person who proposes to be a candidate may solicit or accept contributions for election purposes or incur campaign expenses until a nomination paper has been filed.

To run for office, you must be eligible to vote in the election. On the day you file your nomination, you must be a Canadian citizen aged 18 or older, qualify as a resident or non-resident elector (see above on eligibility to vote), and not ineligible under the Municipal Election Act or any other Act or otherwise prohibited by law to be nominated for or to hold the office.
