The most recent general local government elections took place on Saturday, November 15, 2014. 

Historically in British Columbia, general local government elections were held every three years. This included elections for mayors, councillors, regional district electoral area directors, and school board trustees. Recent changes to the Local Government Act have increased the term of office from three years to four years beginning with the 2014 Election. Those elected will serve a four year term commencing December 2014 and ending November 2018. View the SLRD Notice of Nomination here.

Within the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD), voters in each electoral area choose one director to serve on the SLRD Board and one school trustee to serve on the relevant School District Board (School District No. 74 - Gold Trail - Areas A and B; School District No. 48 - Howe Sound - Areas C and D).
