For the first time, on November 7th, you will be invited to vote for your new MRC des Collines-de-l'Outaouais warden!
In the past, the MRC's Warden was chosen from among the mayors who sat on the Council of Mayors. At its meeting held on February 20, 2020, the Council of Mayors of the MRC des Collines unanimously adopted a bylaw according to which the choice of the Warden will henceforth be made by universal suffrage. This bylaw cannot be repealed.
The Warden represents not only the mayors, but also the citizens of his MRC. He or she represents the interests of several municipalities. The role of the Warden allows several municipalities to speak with one voice on common issues.
If you live on the territory of a municipality of the MRC des Collines-de-l'Outaouais, you must vote for the Warden in the municipality where you reside at the same time as the vote for your mayor and municipal councillor, on November 7, 2021.
If you live in a municipality, but own one or more properties elsewhere in the MRC des Collines-de-l'Outaouais, you must vote for the Warden in the municipality where you reside (where your permanent residence is located).
