Lac Ste. Anne County believes is it very important that all residents receive information about the boundary changes approved by Council to the divisional boundaries this spring. In addition to advertising in the Bulletin, on our website www.LSAC.ca and @lsacounty on Facebook, the County will be sending postcards to all those that have changed division. If you do not receive a postcard, you can confirm you division on our website at www.LSAC.ca/divisionfinder, where a new tool allows you to check the division of any address in the County. Please contact Lac Ste. Anne County at 1-866-880-5722, if you require any additional assistance.

The bellow tool will allow residents to simply put in their address and the tool will inform the user in which division the address is located. Polling station information will be available here in September, when nominations are final and polling information can be distributed.

If you are effected a letter will be sent out to each property that has undergone a change in division following the boundary changes made by Council. The letter is currently in the design phase and staff are refining the database so please check back before election day.
