Amendments to the Canada Elections Act

An Act to amend the Canada Elections Act (verification of residence) (formerly Bill C-18) received royal assent on December 14, 2007.

This legislation amends the Canada Elections Act to allow an elector or voucher who provides a piece of identification that does not prove his or her residence to use that piece of identification to prove his or her residence provided that the address on the piece of identification is consistent with information related to the elector or voucher that appears on the list of electors.
