Have Your Say!

Have your say. Check your property tax bill to ensure you are able to vote for your School Trustee in the 2018 municipal elections.

One of the greatest rights we have in Canada is to "have your say". In Ontario, we are all given the freedom of choice in choosing our Mayor, City Councillor, and School Board Trustee. These elections will be held on Monday, October 22, 2018.

Check your property tax bill. They are being mailed out from now until August. The assessment section of your tax bill should have "ES" written in the Tax Class field. By default, everyone's support is automatically directed to the "English Public" school. This means that you may need to proactively change your direction of school support (taxes) to "English Separate" in order to vote for an OCSB Trustee.

Update your voter information online at voterlookup.ca. It's just three simple steps and takes under one minute to complete. The update will ensure you receive the correct ballot at your polling station in October.
