Electors have the opportunity to petition for the recall of a municipal councillor 18 months after their election. This means Albertans will be able to initiate a petition starting on April 18, 2023, if a councillor was elected in the last general election of October 18, 2021.

Councillors elected in a summer village or via by-election are subject to the same 18-month legislative provision, meaning the window to start a recall petition may differ from those elected during the last general election.

Chief Administrative Officers have a role to play in this petition process. For more information on municipal councillor recall, please review our handbook at: https://open.alberta.ca/publications/recall-of-a-municipal-councillor-handbook (Recall Handbook).

A recording of the Recall of Municipal Councillor training from Fall 2022 is also available for viewing at https://youtu.be/tl0dBtdBT9A (Recall Training).

Next Election

Our Next Municipal Election will be in 2025!

Municipal elections in Alberta occur every four years on the third Monday in October. That means our next municipal election will be on Monday, October 20th, 2025.

Closer to the election date, the Town will be looking for election workers, so keep watching our Career Opportunities in 2025 to apply for one of these exciting positions.
