The representation for school board elections are subject to change in the year of the Election based on a formula for each Board which determines representation to an elector population of the Board's jurisdiction in accordance with the Education Act of Ontario.

Generally, in order to run for an office, one must be an eligible elector for the office.
Criteria for eligibility is contained in the Municipal Elections Act, Municipal Act, and
Education Act (for school board elections). For a full description of qualifications, please refer to the applicable pieces of legislation listed above.
Qualifications for offices include: residency within the municipality; or own or lease land within the municipality (or spouse or same sex partner of such person); and on Voting Day be a Canadian citizen at least 18 years of age, and not be prohibited from voting for any other reason.
The voter qualification period begins on the first Tuesday after Labour Day in an Election year and continues until Voting Day; however, elected candidates must continue to be qualified throughout the term of office.

Nomination Day is the Friday 45 days before October 27th Voting Day, which in 2014 will be Friday, September 12, 2014 from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. Candidates may withdraw a nomination anytime up until 2:00 pm on September 12th. However, nomination papers may also be filed prior to Nomination Day anytime after January 1 in an Election year during normal office hours of the City Clerk's Department.

Applications for Nomination may be obtained in the City Clerk's Department. The Nomination must be on the prescribed form and be accompanied with a $100 filing fee ($200 if seeking the office of Mayor) payable by cash, debit, certified cheque or money order. Candidates may only spend or raise funds for their campaign after they have filed their nomination papers.
A candidate may only run for one office, but should more than one nomination form be filed by a candidate, the last nomination filed will be deemed filed, and all previous nominations deemed withdrawn. Filing a second or more nomination also impacts on campaign funds and expenditures. Potential candidates should consult with the Clerk's Department before considering this.
Nominations are certified or rejected by the Clerk on the Monday following Nomination Day. In 2014, that will be Monday, September 15th.
