Pen filling in a ballot.

On October 15, 2022 voters in BC will elect mayors, councilors, area directors, school trustees and others to fill four-year terms on municipal councils, regional district boards, school boards, and other public organizations.

School trustees sit on a board of education to govern a local school district through strategic planning, policy setting to support the strategic plan, and monitor student progress throughout their term. They represent the communities within the school district by acting as a collective interface between the public and school district management. Trustees operate at a governance level to ensure that the management of facilities and the educational requirements of students are provided in a progressive and educationally sound manner.

The Strathcona Regional District will conduct school board trustee elections on behalf of the Campbell River School District for the following areas:

Electoral Area 1 (Greater Campbell River - 5 seats)
Electoral Area 2 (Sayward Valley - 1 seat)
Electoral Area 3 (Discovery Islands: Quadra, Cortes & Read - 1 seat)

The nomination period for candidates to submit their nominations to local election officials was August 30 to September 9, 2022 and the chief electoral officer has issued a declaration of school trustee candidates running for election on October 15. Nomination documents and related information for each candidate are available from the electoral area links posted above.

On Monday, September 19, 2022 the chief electoral officer declared that trustees for Sayward Valley and Discovery Islands (Quadra, Cortes & Read) have been elected by acclamation. There will only be an election in Electoral Area 1 (Greater Campbell River). The declaration of acclamation can be viewed on the electoral area links posted above.
