CCO Election FAQs

In anticipation of queries you may have, here are some key questions and answers.

1. Will the OCA endorse any specific candidate over another?

The OCA is not endorsing any candidate. We think a robust roster of candidates, coupled with well-informed voters, will achieve the best results for the profession in Ontario.

2. What exactly is the OCA’s role in this election then?

To mobilize all eligible voters, the OCA will profile every candidate, equitably, in all three districts so members can make informed choices with their votes.

3. Can I contact specific candidates directly to ask them questions?

Yes, you can contact any candidate. There is no CCO prohibition on individual chiropractors engaging with Council candidates to ask questions or obtain more information on their views.

To eligible voters, remember that your votes must be received by the CCO by March 29, 2021, 4 p.m.
