District 1 Supplemental Nomination Period, 2023 Elections

We are writing to provide an important update about the upcoming COO elections. An initial call for nominations for opticians in District 1 went on July 21, 2023. At this time, however, there are no nominations for eligible candidates in District 1. In light of this, we are announcing a supplemental nomination period to give potential candidates from District 1 who were unable to submit a nomination during the initial window another opportunity to participate. Nominations for opticians in District 1, will be accepted until Monday, September 18, 2023 at 1:00 pm.

District 1, (Southern) is comprised of The Regional Municipality of Halton, The City of Hamilton, The Regional Municipality of Niagara, The Regional Municipality of Haldimond – Norfolk, and The County of Brant.


As a District 1 optician, we hope you will consider seeking nomination for yourself or for another optician in your district who shares the COO’s commitment to regulating the profession in the public interest.


How do I seek nomination?

Visit the elections page for details on the nominations process. Submit your completed nomination package by email to before 1:00 pm on Monday, September 18, 2023.
