Report of the Chief Electoral Officer of Canada Following the June 30, 2014, By-elections Held in Fort McMurray—Athabasca, Macleod, Scarborough—Agincourt and Trinity—Spadina and the November 17, 2014, By-elections Held in Whitby—Oshawa and Yellowhead
The 2014 by-elections held on June 30, 2014, in Fort McMurray–Athabasca, Macleod, Scarborough–Agincourt and Trinity–Spadina and on November 17, 2014, in Whitby—Oshawa and Yellowhead ran smoothly. These by-elections allowed Elections Canada to pilot new training processes and materials for election administrators in preparation for the 2015 general election.
The agency's focus now turns to the final preparations required to deliver the general election. These include maintaining election readiness; refining instructions to field staff; progressively deploying resources across the country, such as supplies, equipment and communications products; and recruiting and training election workers.
