City of Edmonton Candidate Forums

Edmonton Elections will be hosting a series of candidate forums for municipal candidates in September and October 2017. Candidate forums provide an opportunity to hear from each of the candidates in order to make an informed decision on Election Day (October 16, 2017).

American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and closed captioning services for persons who are deaf or hard of hearing will be provided at all candidate forums hosted by the City of Edmonton.

Not able to attend? Watch the forums on a live webcast and submit your questions through Twitter using the event hashtag, or watch a recording of the forum on this website at a later date.

Candidate forums are subject to cancellation if election by acclamation occurs.

For more information about how these events will run, view the Candidate Forum Guidelines
