To run in the election, a candidate must meet the qualifications, which are a Canadian Citizen, 18 years or older, a resident of BC for at least 6 months before the day their papers are filed and not disqualified by the local government act.
The candidate for Councillor must find two nominees and fill out the appropriate nomination paperwork. Once completed they must be taken to Chief Electoral Officer Walter McLellen or Deputy Chief Electoral Officer Shirly Boudreault at City Hall prior to the cut off, 4 pm, October 15th.
Nomination packages are available at City Hall and there is still plenty of time to pick one up although the election officers are encouraging people not to wait until the last minute.
