Voter Registration Canada Online:

All Canadian citizens have a chance to decide through a vote who represents them in federal politics. A federal election is conducted to choose the prime minister. When there is an election, Elections Canada prepares a list of voters, which is derived from the information available in the National Register of Electors. This is a database showing the people who qualify to vote in Canada. Some few weeks prior to elections, you will get a Voter Information Card that tells you’re registered. The card also shows where and when you will need to vote. Information about advance polls location and date is also included in the card.
