The official list of candidates, as certified by the City Clerk, is available on the City’s website at www.brampton.ca/bramptonvotes.
Elected by Acclamation
The Municipal Elections Act, 1996, states that, if, at 4 pm on the Monday following Nomination Day, the number of certified candidates for an office is the same as or less than the number to be elected, the Clerk shall immediately declare the candidate or candidates elected by acclamation. Only one nomination has been received for the office of Trustee, Conseil scolaire Viamonde. This makes the successful candidate, Yvon Rochefort, elected by acclamation.
