Yellowknife Municipal Election 2018 – Candidate Information

Yellowknife has the opportunity to elect a new city council and mayor every three years – possibly soon to be 4 years. This is the time for residents to learn about who is putting their names forward to represent the community when it comes to municipal decisions. And some would say it is our civic duty as residents to be informed and vote. To the end, I have put together somewhat of a directory of all the information that can be found online about each of the 4 mayoral candidates and 16 council candidates.

As new information is published I will add it to the directory. If something is obviously missing, please let me know in a comment below or through the contact page.

A few points though, I will not be linking to personal Facebook Profiles, only Facebook Pages. In some cases councillors seeking re-election still have election material online from 2015, please ensure you read closely for current day platforms.
