Cariboo Regional District
WILLIAMS LAKE – The Cariboo Regional District has announced a by-election for a Director for Electoral Area F, which includes 150 Mile House, Likely and Horsefly. The by-election is scheduled for March 30, 2019.

The nomination period for candidates begins at 9 a.m. on Feb. 12, 2019 and closes at 4 p.m. on Feb. 22, 2019. Nomination packages are available at cariboord.ca/elections and at the CRD’s Williams Lake office.

To be nominated, a person must meet the following criteria:
  • Canadian citizen;
  • 18 years of age or older;
  • resident of British Columbia for at least 6 months immediately before the day nomination papers are filed; and
  • not disqualified by the Local Government Act or any other enactment from voting in an election in British Columbia or from being nominated for, being elected to, or holding office.
