How to Vote
Who can vote?
A person is entitled to be an elector at an election held in a local municipality if, on voting day, he or she:
- Resides in the City of Mississauga or is the owner or tenant of land in the City of Mississauga, or a spouse of such owner or tenant;
- Is a Canadian citizen; and,
- Is at least 18 years old
Are you Eligible to Vote?
You must be registered as a Catholic ratepayer and eligible to vote for your Catholic School Trustee.
Direction of school support has long been an issue for Catholic school boards in Ontario. The fact is that, unless the municipality is notified, the school support designation, for assessment purposes, automatically defaults to public school support when an individual or family moves to a new address.
This may have an impact on students’ eligibility to attend Catholic elementary schools, trustee representation on school boards, and on government perception of support for Catholic education.
We want to bring a greater awareness around this matter and have created the Are You Ticked? campaign as the communication vehicle for this awareness.
If you would like more information on school support designation or would like us to help you check or change your school support designation to the Catholic system, please call (905) 890-0708, ext. 24512.
