Twenty-four Nunavut hamlets to hold elections this Monday
All but one of Nunavut’s 25 communities are set to hold municipal elections this Monday, Dec. 11.
The territory’s capital, Iqaluit, held city council byelections this past spring, and normally holds its regular council elections every three years on the third Monday in October.
It won’t stay that way for long; Nunavut’s MLAs passed Bill 49 earlier this year, which sets fixed election dates for hamlets, district education authorities and Nunavut’s single French-language school board.
Starting in 2019, that means all municipalities, including Iqaluit, will hold their elections on the same day: the fourth Monday in October.
