About the National Register of Electors

The Register is a permanent list of all Canadians eligible to vote that is updated regularly. It's used in federal elections to create voters lists and to communicate with voters.

Elections Canada shares voter information with most provinces and territories for provincial and territorial elections too, which reduces duplication and saves money.

Elections Canada takes precautions to ensure that the information contained in the Register is kept secure and used for authorized purposes only.
