If a person registers for the federal election are they automatically registered for the provincial election?

Federal Election

When is the Federal General Election?

The 44th Canadian federal election will take place on or before October 16, 2023. The Chief Electoral Officer may recommend an alternate day for a fixed-date general election if the date set for polling is not suitable for that purpose.

That said, the Canada Elections Act does not prevent a general election from being called at another date.

General elections are called when, on the advice of the Prime Minister, the Governor-General dissolves Parliament. The Governor in Council (the Governor-General, acting on the advice of Cabinet) sets the date of the election.

How do I register for the Federal Election?
