Important to know

As per the Canada Not-for-Profit Corporations Act and CIRA's By-law, in order to vote in the 2022 Board of Directors Election, you must have been a CIRA member at least 21 days prior to the start of voting (specifically, by end of day August 25, 2022) and continue to be a member at the time you cast your ballot.

Under section 23 of the Canada Not-For-Profit Corporations Act, CIRA is required to provide the list of its members to members who submit the required Statutory Declaration (see section 23(5)) to contact each other for purposes related to the affairs of the organization, including influencing votes in an election. The list is provided through secure channels in an electronic format that is a compilation of the list of members. While CIRA is obligated by law to provide the list, CIRA strongly encourages members who receive the list to only contact those members who are part of their professional and/or social circle to respect members’ privacy.
