2017 Municipal Election
This section is currently being updated. Information will be posted as soon at it is available.

Election Day is Monday, October 16, 2017

The next Town of Banff Municipal Election will be held on October 16, 2017. Nomination Day will be September 18, 2017.


Effective January 1, 2014, changes to the Local Authorities Election Act require all candidates intending to run in the next municipal election to register with the municipality prior to accepting campaign contributions.

Anyone who is running in this fall's municipal election - for Mayor or Councillor - is required to register with the municipality prior to accepting campaign contributions or contributing personal funds toward their election campaign.  

If you are interested in running for municipal office (mayor or councillor) please complete and file the original  Application for Registration of Notice of Intent to Become a Candidate for Municipal Office Form 3A with the Municipal Clerk's office, either in person or by mail. Prospective candidates need to file their intentions to run in order to raise funds for their campaigns, but do not need to identify what position they plan to run for until they submit their papers on the official nomination day.

Office Location: 110 Bear Street, Banff, Alberta

Mailing Address: Box 1260, Banff, Alberta, T1L 1A1

Candidates who would like information relative to campaign contributions can review the Local Authorities Election Act and access Part 5 - Municipal Election and Contribution Disclosure - which begins on page 89 of the Act. 

Candidates Guide
A candidate information package, which will provide prospective candidates with additional information about running for Town of Banff Council, is currently under development. When finalized, this document will be available electronically online and by paper copy at Town Hall.

Alberta Municipal Affairs has published a Prospective Candidates Guide for Running for Office in Alberta for reference.
