Voting

This year our voting will take place electronically in Zoom using the poll function. Once the election voting period is open, non-voting members will be temporarily moved into a breakout room for the duration of voting. In the main room, a Zoom poll will become available to voting members that includes the names of all nominees, including those from the floor. Fifteen minutes will be allocated to the voting process. Once all votes are in, the breakout room will close and non-voting members will be able to rejoin the main room.

Voting Eligibility

All those who are members of the Society as of 9:00pm on May 12, 2021, are eligible to vote in the election and stand for election.

Because our facilities and services have been reduced this year, our 2021 memberships are now free. You can obtain a free membership over the phone by calling 604.718.5800 (1) or online here. Memberships are valid until December 31, 2021.

Please note: We have a limited capacity to answer the phone at this time. If you need to purchase your membership over the phone, please do not wait until the last minute as we may not be able to process your request.
