Does it cost money to become a Candidate? How much?


The non-refundable amounts vary per position - $2,500 for Council, $1,250 for School Board, and $1,000 for Park Board.

Nominations fees can consist of donations to Vision Vancouver from you, as the Nomination Contestant and/or individual donors. All contributions must be from eligible contributors in accordance with Elections BC campaign financing rules.

The fee can be paid through a combination of fundraising and membership sign-ups totalling the fee amount. Each new member registered earns $10 towards your Nomination fee.

The Board may waive fees for equity-seeking candidates.
