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. 

Due to time limitations, it is likely not every audience and Twitter question will be answered. Contact information is available on the Open Data Portal for those looking to follow up with a candidate.

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

Forum Schedule and Webcasts

The City of Edmonton will provide webcasting services at each candidate forum for Mayor and Councillor Candidate forums. (Candidate forum schedule is subject to change.)
