Voting in the Federal Election

The Canadian federal election period is currently in full swing. If you are working on voting day, you are legally eligible for three consecutive hours to vote at the poll. If you are working during your local polling station’s open hours, the employer is mandated to allow you to arrive late, to leave early, or to take time off during your work period to vote. Visit Elections Canada for information on voting.
