Holding office as an elected official in a municipal government can be rewarding as well as very challenging. It requires a real commitment of time over a period of four (4) years. The Municipal Elections Act sets out in detail the requirements to be met by candidates for office. This Nomination Procedures document is only a summarized version of the nomination requirements for your convenience. It is in no way to be construed as legal advice and/or a replacement for the legislation itself. This document is only a guide to certain portions of the legislation that have general relevance and does not recite all parts of the legislation. Before you file your nomination papers, we strongly urge you to obtain your own updated copy of the Municipal Elections Act which can be downloaded from the Ministry’s website at www.e-laws.gov.on.ca or purchased from the Ontario Government Bookstore. Once your nomination paper is filed with the Clerk, you will be given a Candidates Package that will provide information and forms that you will need during the Campaign period and thereafter.
