General Elections

Every four years, Municipal Elections take place across the Saskatchewan. The last municipal general election was held in November of 2020. Elected Officials hold office for a period of 4 years until the first meeting of Council after the next election. The next election is scheduled to be held in 2024.


Byelections are called when a position on Council becomes vacant a year or more before the next general election. 

Who can Run as an Election Candidate:

A person can be nominated as a candidate for Mayor or Councillor if they:
  1. will be at least 18 or older on election day; 
  2. are a Canadian citizen;
  3. have been a resident of the City of Meadow Lake for at least three consecutive months before submitting their nomination papers; and
  4. have been a resident of Saskatchewan for at least six consecutive months before submitting their nomination periods.
A person cannot be nominated if they are a judge of a court or an auditor or solicitor of the municipality. If a City employee wishes to be nominated, they must take a leave of absence during the nomination period which would take effect permanently if elected. Having a contract with the City does not disqualify a person from being nominated.
