If the information contained on your Voter Notification Card is incorrect, or if you think your name does not appear on the Voters’ List, you will need to complete an Application to Amend the Voters’ List. Please bring proof of Canadian citizenship (birth certificate, passport or citizenship card) along with personal identification showing place of residence (such as your driver’s licence, health card or motor vehicle permit) to one of the following locations from Monday to Friday on or before October 20, 2017 during the office hours posted below:
