The university will remain open and all academic activities and services will continue as usual during Election Day polling.
Time off to vote
Under the Canada Elections Act, if employees are eligible to vote, they are allowed three consecutive hours on Election Day to vote during voting hours (9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.). If their work schedule does not permit them to take this time off to vote, they must be granted additional time. Employees should speak directly with their department chair or supervisor or to make arrangements for additional time off to vote.
