Want to become a candidate to represent the interests of your community and help citizens exercise their rights? Here are the rules you need to follow in order to comply school election laws.

Choosing a position

A person may run as a candidate for only one position on a school board council per election, either as chair or commissioner. They may run in only one English-language school board and in only one electoral division of that board.


You don’t have to be a homeowner or pay school taxes to run in a school election. However, a person must be eligible to have their name entered on the list of electors of the school board they are running for, and on polling day, have been domiciled in its territory for at least six months.

You can start campaigning now, but if you want to raise funds, you’ll need to fill in the forms below.
