Why vote?

Every Canadian citizen has the right to vote, and a cornerstone of our democracy is free and fair elections. Voting gives Canadians the power to choose officials that best represent them. Your vote matters as those elected to serve on Dawson Creek City Council make decisions on services that impact the residents of our community’s daily lives such as parks, recreation programs, animal control and bylaw services, waste collection, land development, and police and fire services. The School District Board makes decisions on maintaining a school system that reflects local priorities by setting plans, policies and an annual budget.
