For immediate release: Fri, 2021-09-17 09:33

The City of Saskatoon will be closing early next week to allow employees the statutory time to vote in the federal election.

As a result, City Hall will close all front public-facing services at 4:30 p.m. on Election Day, Monday, September 20, 2021. 

The Canada Elections Act states that employers must allow employees three consecutive hours to cast their votes while the polls are open. Polls are open from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

A secure payment drop box is located outside the front doors of City Hall at 222-3rd Avenue North for customers to drop off cheque payments after hours.

To help reduce transportation barriers to voting polls, residents can ride all routes on Access, On-Demand Transit and fixed-route transit for FREE on Monday, September 20.

Find the free pass at or pick one up at the Transit Customer Service Centre, any Saskatoon Public Library, City Hall, or a Civic Leisure Centre. Simply show the pass to the operator on your phone or physically.
