Provincial Officer Elections
Beginning in August, members and delegates will be able to access information here about nominated candidates for the MGEU Provincial Officer elections. This candidate information will also be mailed to all delegates.
The MGEU Board of Directors has temporarily adapted the rules and procedures for provincial officer elections to accommodate the fact that both the Convention and Local election meetings will be conducted virtually. The complete 2021 election rules and procedures are listed in Appendix 1 of the updated MGEU Policy and Procedures Manual. The modifications apply only to the 2021 election and Convention process.
Members interested in running for a provincial officer position should obtain a candidate information package from Director of Member Services, Janet Kehler, who has been designated as the Elections Chairperson. She can also be reached through the MGEU Resource Centre.
To be on the ballot for a provincial officer position, each candidate must submit their completed nomination form and letter of intent to the Elections Chairperson by 12:00pm on October 20, 2021.
Please note that candidates submitting their papers early are able to take full advantage of the various campaigning opportunities provided for in the rules and procedures.
