You Can Vote

As a Canadian citizen, you can vote in federal, provincial and municipal (city) elections. Voting means you get to have a say in who runs your town, city, school board, province, territory, or country.

Voting is a major benefit and a responsibility of citizenship. Canada counts on citizens staying engaged and voting in elections. This ensures that those who get elected are a good representation of who Canadians want to run their governments.
