Changes to the Municipal Elections Act

Municipal elections in all Ontario municipalities, including the Town of Parry Sound, are governed by the Municipal Elections Act, 1996 (the "MEA").  On June 9, 2016, the Municipal Elections Modernization Act, 2016, or Bill 181, received Royal Assent, making a number of changes to the MEA.
