Elections In Canada Summary

Elections in Canada

Canada holds elections for legislatures or governments in several jurisdictions: nationally (federally), provincially and territorially, and municipally. Elections are also held for self-governing First Nations and for many other public and private organizations including corporations and trade unions. Municipal elections can also be held for both upper-tier (regional municipality or county) and lower-tier (town and city) governments. Formal elections have occurred in Canada since at least 1792, when both Upper Canada and Lower Canada had their first elections. National voting is available to Canadian citizens aged 18 or older who reside in Canada (residence is no longer a factor in determining participation in voting). Other elections may have citizenship, residency, or ownership requirements (some municipalities allow both residents and non-resident landowners to vote).
