Municipal and School Board Elections 2018

Election Day is October 22, 2018

On October 22, Catholic School Board elections will be held throughout Ontario and it's important to ensure that you are accurately recorded on the voters' list.   The voice and vote of Catholic ratepayers is important to the future of our Catholic schools.  In order to vote for a Catholic trustee, you must be registered as a Separate School Supporter.
