Monday deadline for Iqaluit city candidates

Today is the deadline for nominations to elect numerous city positions in Iqaluit, including one city council seat, and two positions on each of the French and English-language school boards.

Today is the deadline for nominations for various vacant seats in Iqaluit. The Iqaluit City Council has one seat up for grabs, which belonged to the late Jimmy "Flash" Kilabuk.

There are also two positions available with the Iqaluit District Education Authority. And two seats are also vacant for the Commission scolaire francophone du Nunavut.

"The election will be for October 28th, it'll be the same day as the Government of Nunavut territorial election," chief returning officer Kirt Ejesiak says. "We want to make sure that we keep it easy and simple for everyone so the city council wanted to make sure the election date was the same."

Nominations for the municipal elections will take place today, Monday September 23 at 3:00 p.m. The nominations sheet can be found online at or picked up at city hall.
