It’s time to make your voice heard and your vote count.

On August 1, we encourage you to vote to elect the next MPP for the riding of Etobicoke Lakeshore.

When heading to the polls, we ask you to consider whether your chosen candidate will: :

  • Maximize and expand the role of RNs to deliver a broader range of care such as ordering lab tests and prescribing medications
  • Ensure all existing nurse practitioner-led clinics are funded to operate at full capacity
  • Improve access to affordable housing
  • Ensure people have a right to know about toxics in their homes, workplaces and consumer products

Send your candidates a message asking about their commitments to the aforementioned issues.

Be ready to speak out for nursing and speak out for health when a candidate knocks on your door by being familiar with our platform.

Attend an all-candidates meeting in your community. Bring a copy of RNAO’s Platform Brochure - Why Your Health Matters
and find out where candidates stand on our issues

VOTE! It's your right and it's your responsibility.

For all questions and information about voting, please call the Returning Office in your riding.

Voting Day is Thursday, August 1 from 9:00 a.m.- 9:00 p.m.

You can also vote at the Returning Office from July 20-July 26. All other advance polls will soon be posted at
