New Canadians

A new Canadian is anyone who has recently received Canadian citizenship. If you’re a new Canadian, congratulations! Becoming a Canadian citizen means you may now be eligible to vote in the next provincial election.

To be eligible to vote in an Ontario provincial election, you must be:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • a Canadian citizen
  • a resident of Ontario

You can use eRegistration to add your information to the voters list. When an election is called in your electoral district, you will receive a voter information card in the mail with information about when and where to vote. Find examples of acceptable ID needed to register your information.
