Who can vote

Anyone can vote in a municipal election who, on the the day of the election is:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • a Canadian citizen; and is

    a) either a resident of the municipality or a property owner or tenant or the spouse or same sex partner of an owner or tenant in the municipality during a specified time just before the election
    b) not prohibited from voting under subsection (3) or otherwise by law.

The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for collecting the information of residents in Ontario (name, date of birth, citizenship and school support) in order to create a Preliminary List of Electors for municipal and school board elections. Municipalities will use the Preliminary List of Electors to prepare their Voters Lists for the 2022 Municipal and School Board Elections.

One of the ways MPAC collects this information is through voterlookup.ca

Here, Ontarians can add their name and the names of other members of their household to a secure database and confirm or update their information.

This helps ensure that each municipality has the most accurate information possible for the 2022 Municipal and School Board Elections.

Take a few minutes to verify your information at voterlookup.ca and encourage your friends and family to do the same. Your name must be on the voters' list in order for you to cast a ballot.

Who can be a candidate?

  • Candidates must be a resident of the municipality or a non-resident owner or tenant of land in the municipality or the spouse of such non-resident owner or tenant;
  • a Canadian citizen and at least 18 years old;
  • not legally prohibited from voting;  and not disqualified by any legislation from holding municipal office.
  • You must pay a fee of $100 ($200 for mayor).

In municipal elections in Ontario, unlike federal or provincial elections, candidates are not elected to represent a political party.
