Due to the worsening COVID-19 cases in the Southern Ontario region, the Elections Governance Committee (EGC) has made the difficult decision to prohibit any form of in-person campaigning for the 2021 election season. To protect the health and safety of the Western and London community, we are taking these measures seriously. Campaigns that are proven to have hosted any form of in-person events will be disqualified. 

Following the guidelines set out by the Middlesex-London Health Unit, the EGC will continue to monitor cases in the area and make decisions pertaining to public safety as they arise. We appreciate the continued diligence and support of prospective candidates and look forward to this innovative, virtual election season. 

Warm Regards,

Julia Crump

Chief Returning Officer
