So far, every ward has at least one candidate for the City of Toronto Municipal Councilor position.
But as of Saturday, Aug. 6, four wards remain uncontested, according to the city’s election webpage which displays a list of candidates. These four wards are: Ward 2 Etobicoke Centre, Ward 17 Don Valley North, Ward 21 Scarborough Center and Ward 24 Scarborough-Guildwood.
Nominations for the City of Toronto’s 2022 municipal election remain open until 2 p.m. on Friday, August 19.
In an Aug. 5 news release, the city said the office of mayor and councilors is having a significant impact on the daily lives of Torontonians by helping to shape city services and programs.
The city said applicants must book a time slot to apply through the new online appointment scheduling system. Nominations can only be dropped off in person at the Toronto Elections City Hall office, 100 Queen St. W., now in a new location on the first floor – just inside the main entrance. The office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday until Thursday, August 18 (excluding statutory holidays) and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, August 19.
Further information, including key qualifications to become a candidate, requirements for submitting a nomination and scheduling an appointment, is available on the Toronto Elections webpage.
Election day is Monday, October 24.
