Report of the Chief Electoral Officer of Canada Following the Windsor–St. Clair By-Election


This report fulfils the statutory obligation of the Chief Electoral Officer to report on the Windsor–St. Clair by-election. Like the past two by-elections in Port Moody–Coquitlam and Sherbrooke, it gave Elections Canada the opportunity to test new developments in computerization in preparation for the next federal general election, while at the same time providing constituents and candidates in the Windsor–St. Clair by-election with up-to-date and efficient electoral administration and services.

As is customary, the report reviews other developments since the last by-election, highlighting progress towards Elections Canada's established goals. We have also taken the opportunity to introduce new plans and priorities that will build on established goals in the years ahead, reflecting directions identified in the recently released strategic plan.
