New Canadians urged to get involved in November 13 municipal election
As new Canadians are sworn in as citizens this Canada Day, the City of Toronto will be reminding them of their right to vote in the municipal election on Monday, November 13.

Anyone can vote in the City of Toronto municipal election if they are:
  • a Canadian citizen
  • at least 18 years old
  • a resident of the City of Toronto
  • a non-resident owner or tenant of land in the City of Toronto, or their spouse
  • not prohibited from voting under any law.

“The services delivered by municipal government touch our everyday lives more than any other level of government,” said Greg Essensa, Director of Elections and Registry Services for the City of Toronto. “Every eligible elector is encouraged to exercise their democratic right to vote.”

The City has prepared information cards that will be available until November at Citizenship and Immigration locations in Toronto to encourage new Canadians to vote. To get on the voters’ list or for more information, call the City’s election office at 416-338-1111 or visit
