To better serve those running for office, or those considering running for office, the Town of Oakville will be compiling questions and/or requests for information by candidates or potential candidates during the year of a municipal election, that will be easily accessible for public review on our Questions & Answers page.
Should you have questions or inquiries about anything related to Town of Oakville services and/or operations, where such information is not addressed on the town website, simply fill out the Request for Information from Election Candidates form and submit by mail, in person or by email.
This process eliminates duplication, maximizes efficient use of staff resources and ensures that all candidates or potential candidates are granted access to the same information. All responses will be provided and posted to this site within seven days of receipt, except where additional time and costs are required for research and record retrieval.
Given the staff time required for some information requests, the requester will be advised, where appropriate and applicable, of any required fees for research and photocopies ($30/hr & 50 cents per photocopy). Payment is required prior to information pick-up. Individuals and candidates must be aware that no campaign expenses may be incurred until after nomination papers have been filed with the Town Clerk.
If the information requested is not a public record, the request will be denied and the requester may determine whether to proceed with a request under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
