This is the first municipal election since Bill 49 was passed into law

Dec 07, 2017

Municipal elections are coming up on Dec. 11 for all communities in Nunavut, except for Iqaluit.

This is the first municipal election since Bill 49, an Act to Provide for Elections for Municipal Councils and District Education Authorities, was passed into law — but this year, changes will be minimal.

Currently, municipalities are responsible for running their own elections. They report the winning candidates to the Department of Community and Government Services.

With the new legislation, Elections Nunavut will manage all elections across the territory, and starting in 2019 elections will be held on the fourth Monday of October every four years.
