City Encourages Residents to Be Election Ready 
On October 24, Timmins will elect its next mayor, ward councillors and school board trustees. Voting in the municipal election is an important part of our democracy and helps ensure a thriving community and local government that best serves its residents. Unfortunately, voter turnout is typically low for municipal elections. The City of Timmins is working to make voting more convenient, easily accessible, and provide information about the upcoming election so that you are prepared and informed.

Eligible voters are included on the voter list provided by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). Names included on the list will receive a Voter Notification Card in the mail with a letter outlining the date to vote, including advanced polls and polling station. If you have moved homes since the last municipal election in 2018, you can verify that your mailing address and information is correct at is a secure database that can be used to update necessary information online. Opportunities for eligible voters to update their information in-person will be provided at a later date.

The City of Timmins is also in the process of hiring election officials. Residents 18 years of age or older as of election day who are eligible to work in Canada can apply for a temporary paid position. The application form is available for download today at
