Local government elections in British Columbia are currently held every 4 years. This includes elections for mayors, councillors, regional district electoral area directors and school trustees. The next general local elections in B.C. will be held on Oct. 15, 2022.
Residents, as well as persons that own property within the jurisdiction of the local government but do not reside there, may be eligible to vote provided eligibility requirements of the Local Government Act are met.
By-elections may be held if the office of a director becomes vacant.
In addition to elections and by-elections, the Regional District may also hold an assent vote (referendum) to obtain the assent of the electors on a proposed service or other matter.
Read the CRD’s election bylaw for more information on election procedures.
