Running for Local Office
Residents of B.C. who are interested in running for office in a general local election must meet certain requirements to be nominated for and hold office if elected. In addition, how elected officials conduct themselves as individuals, and collectively as part of a decision-making body, is key to carrying out their responsibilities and providing good governance to their communities.
Provincial legislation sets out residency and nomination requirements, the nomination process, public access to nomination documents, how candidates may run their election campaigns and conduct election advertising as well as campaign financing recording and disclosure rules and certain campaign financing restrictions. Visit the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing website for further information on the election process.
Elections BC administers campaign financing for local government elections. Forms and Guides are available here.
