A crash course for potential municipal candidates is being offered by various townships across Renfrew County.
Two Candidate Information Workshops will be run on Zoom and in-person on March 29th. The workshops are open to potential candidates, spouses or partners of candidates, or anyone interested in local government. Topics include the responsibilities of candidates, conflict of interest, what powers candidates will have if elected, and much more.
The talks will be headed by Fred Dean, a lawyer for municipalities. He is a facilitator training members of council and heads of council for the Association of Municipalities. The event is put on by Madawaska Valley, as well as several townships across the region.
Pre-registration is required. To register, email [email protected] or call 613-432-2885.
Municipal elections are set to take place on October 24th.
