Breaking News – July 27, 2018:

An announcement by Premier Ford was made on July 27, 2018 regarding amending the Municipal Act and the Municipal Elections Act, including among other things, reversing changes introduced in 2016 that mandated the election of regional chairs, at large, in York, Peel, Niagara and Muskoka Regions. This change would see the system, that was in place prior to 2016, revert back to Regional Council appointing a Regional Chair.

At this point, no legislation has been adopted in this regard; therefore, there will be no change with respect to Nomination Day and nominations will be accepted until 2:00 pm on Friday, July 27, 2018. Further information regarding the above will be shared as we learn more details.
