Voter Information for Mayoral By-Election


Starting this week, eligible voters can confirm they are on the voters’ list and add or update their information for Toronto’s 2023 by-election for mayor, taking place Monday, June 26. To appear on the final voters’ list, all revisions must be submitted to Toronto Elections by Friday, May 26.

Residents can check if they are on the voters’ list by visiting Toronto Elections MyVote or calling 311.

Voter information cards will be mailed to eligible voters on the voters’ list starting Tuesday, May 23. The cards provide information about when and where to vote either during the advance vote from June 8 to 13 or on Election Day, June 26.

If an eligible voter on the voters’ list does not receive their voter information card in the mail, they can visit MyVote ( and print or upload a digital copy of their voter information card to their mobile device to show at their voting location. Eligible voters do not need a voter information card to vote and it cannot be used as identification. More information about voter information cards is available on the Toronto Elections webpage .

All voters are required to show identification with their name and qualifying Toronto address. A complete list of acceptable identification is available on the Toronto Elections Identification webpage .

Request for Proposals has been issued for 150 Dunn Supportive Housing

This RFP is to select a non-profit housing provider to sub-lease and operate affordable rental housing with support services at 150 Dunn Ave.

This project is being delivered in partnership with all orders of government, the University Health Network (UHN), the Gattuso Centre for Social Medicine and the United Way of Greater Toronto. The Social Medicine Initiative incorporates housing as a critical social determinant of health for individuals experiencing homelessness, particularly those from equity-deserving groups who are over-represented in Toronto’s homeless population with complex, chronic or acute health needs and who are recurring patients at UHN clinics and/or emergency departments.
