When will the next election be?


The date for future Provincial General Election is now set by Fixed Election Dates legislation. A general election shall be held on the first Monday in October in the fourth calendar year following ordinary polling day in the most recent general election. 

The legislation governing the period of time for which current Members of the Legislative Assembly may serve as elected Members is contained in the Legislative Assembly Act.

Section 7 of this Act states:

"Subject to being sooner dissolved by Lieutenant Governor, every Legislative Assembly shall continue for five years from the day of the return of the Writs for a general election, and no longer."

The next scheduled election date is for October, 2019.
