Candidates Information

The Local Government Election Act provides that a person is qualified to be nominated as a candidate for and hold office as a BOARD MEMBER for a school division if the person:

(a)  is a voter of the school division on the day of the election;

(b)  is a Canadian citizen at the time he or she submits his or her nomination paper; and

(c)   has resided:

(i)  in the school division for at least three consecutive months immediately
preceding the date on which he or she submitted the nomination paper; and

(ii)  in Saskatchewan for at least six consecutive months immediately preceding the
date on which he or she submitted the nomination paper.

A candidate may choose to run in the In-City Subdivision area or one of the five Out-of-City Subdivision Areas of the school, regardless of his or her residency in the division; however, he or she must obtain signatures of voters of only that subdivision area in which he or she intends to run.

Disqualification
An employee of a board of education or joint board may seek nomination to the board or joint board as defined in the Education Act, 1995 with which the person is employed if the person has first obtained a leave of absence in accordance with 2-54 (1) (a) of the Saskatchewan Employment Act.
