About Senate Elections

The 2021 Alberta Senate nominee election will be held on October 18, 2021 in conjunction with Alberta municipal elections.


In 2019, Alberta reinstated Senate nominee elections to allow Albertans to choose who would best represent them in the Senate.

Under the previous law, which expired in 2016, Alberta held Senate nominee elections from 1989 until 2012.

The next Alberta Senate vacancy is scheduled for March 2021. Once a Senate nominee is elected, the Government of Alberta will provide the name of the Senate nominees to the prime minister for consideration when filling Senate vacancies.

More details are available on the Government of Alberta website.
