Running for Municipal Office

Thank you for thinking of running for your local municipal council. Saskatchewan municipalities need citizens like you to assume leadership roles to represent the people in your community or region, and to provide direction on the policies and programs that will lead to better quality services for communities.

Serving in elected positions is not easy but being a member of council offers a lot of personal satisfaction. Rural municipalities hold an election for selected divisions every two years; however, each council member holds office for a four-year term.
