2022 Municipal Election
 


Your vote is crucial – and it’s online!

On October 24, 2022, be sure to vote. It’s the most important thing we can do as a community to protect the future of Muskoka. This year voters will be able to cast their vote online or by telephone.  You may vote anytime between October 17 and 24.  You will receive a Voter Information Letter in the mail at your permanent address sometime in September.  You need this to vote!

Your councillor is your voice on council.  If you are a strong advocate for protecting Muskoka, your councillor should be too. Be sure that your vote goes to someone who prioritizes responsible development, environmental protection and strong fiscal management.

Vote to:

  • End excessive tree clearing and blasting like on Sugarloaf Island
  • Stop residential subdivisions masquerading as resorts on our shorelines – 27 km of Muskoka shoreline are at risk without strong resort  development policies
  • Protect nature and our lakes
  • Promote watershed management to mitigate flooding
  • Ensure more effective by-law enforcement
  • Ensure transparent budgets and more effective use of your tax dollars
  • Promote a year-round economy, with high-speed internet and affordable housing
  • Address irresponsible short term rentals
  • Prevent council conflicts of interest
  • Preserve the long-term value of your Muskoka investment 

Take a stand for Muskoka

Cottage owners, their spouses and renters will be able to vote on-line or by phone. You must be 18+ years old and a Canadian citizen. You may vote in every municipality in Ontario where you own property so you may vote in both your home and your cottage municipal elections. You must be registered to vote.
