Have Your Say at Election Time – Check Your Assessment Today

Don’t wait until right before the October 22 Municipal Election to check your assessment – if you have moved any time in the past four years, now is a great time to ensure that you are eligible to vote for English-Separate trustees.

Assessment is assigned to the property, not the homeowner, so it’s important to check with your local Clerk’s Office to ensure that the assessment is designated English-Separate. Designating your support not only makes you eligible to vote for your Niagara Catholic trustee(s), it is also a very visible support for Catholic education in Niagara.
