Can anybody tell me if there is a deadline by which the Returning Officer must take their Oath? I know previously it was January 1st of an election year and am assuming that may have changed.
Thank you.

Our City Solicitor has provided a definition for trade unions from the Labour Relations Act; given the MEA is silent and points you to the LRA definition, I want to know if this the broad definition municipalities are using or is there something else you may have received from a municipal advisor, any assistance would be appreciated.

In the AMCTO manual - Form EL16 shows that S.25 of the act allows for this. In the amended act, this part has been removed and S.25 only applies to a deceased person now. Am I missing something or is there a section that this form still pertains to? Thanks!

Sorry - I just saw your question. This is what we put in our plan: In the event of a postal strike by Canada Post, the Voter Information Letters will be circulated by email, courier and personal service.

Yes, that is correct. I just noticed on the AMCTO Elections Calender under October 19th, Friday, it says while this is the legislated day (Oct. 19, 2018), it must be completed before December 31, 2017. I am not sure where this date is coming from - perhaps a suggested date.
