Federal Election 2019

The 43rd Canadian federal election is scheduled for Monday, October 21, 2019.

FOCA has members represented in each Ontario riding.

In a federal election, even if you own property in more than one place, you may vote only once, in the riding of your “ordinary residence.”

NOTE: during the last (2015) federal election, FOCA received confirmation from Elections Canada that individuals (“electors”) could choose to designate their cottage riding as their “ordinary residence,” IF they could produce the approved identification, and they appeared at the polling station with a neighbour that could vouch for their identity.
