This year, our FCM Board elections and AGM will take place during FCM’s (virtual!) Annual Conference and Trade Show, from June 1-4.

Who is eligible to vote?

FCM’s municipal members who register to attend the Annual Conference are automatically registered to vote in our elections and AGM. Non-members who attend the conference (e.g., municipal staff) are not permitted to vote.

Only registered voters may speak on the record at the AGM.

Municipal Members
Are you an elected official from a municipality that belongs to FCM? If so, you will automatically be registered to vote when you register for the Annual Conference.

Affiliate Members
Any association of municipalities located within any one Canadian province or Territory can be an affiliate member once its application (under section 2.04 of FCM’s bylaws) is complete. Affiliate members may nominate up to two people attending the conference to vote in the elections.

Register to vote

If you’re an FCM member, we’ll automatically add you to our voter registration list when you register for our Annual Conference and Trade Show (June 1-4).

Conference registration opens soon. We’ll keep you posted!
