Open races

Jim Tovey, Mississauga councillor for Ward 1, died suddenly in January 2018. Tovey was in the midst of planning for massive waterfront redevelopment.[2]

In February 2018, Brampton councillor Chris Gibson announced his retirement in Wards 1 & 5. Officially a city councillor, he had been given the City's additional Regional seat for multiple terms.[3] Regional councillor Elaine Moore, from the same wards, announced her retirement in late March.[4]

Gael Miles retirement was made public the evening before the start of registration.[5] Caledon's Doug Beffort retired


Peel Region chair

Original nomination process

Starting the year "85% sure" he would run,[6] Ron Starr officially announced his intention to run for Regional Chair in late March 2018.[7]

Rumours that were circulating of Patrick Brown running for Regional chair were neither confirmed or denied, when asked by Metroland in May 2018. Brown was accused of sexual misconduct in January, which he denies, forcing his resignation as Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario leader. He moved to Mississauga after being removed from the party caucus. He did not run for re-election as a Barrie MPP in the June provincial election.[8]

Mississauga councillor Nando Iannicca enrolled in July.[9]

Bob Delaney, former MPP for Mississauga-Streetsville, registered in July. Charles Sousa and Harinder Takhar, also former MPPs, agreed to not run, in an effort to not split the vote.[10]

Candidates still must file a financial statement before March 29, 2019, under the Municipal Elections Act.[11]

Scheduled cancellation

The election was to be notable as the first ever direct election of the Peel Regional chair. This election is pending cancellation on July 27, the last day of registration, after a sudden change by Premier Doug Ford.[1]

While this prompted Brown to pull his Chair nomination, to run for Mayor of Brampton, Delaney continued his campaign, noting that the law had yet to pass.[12]

Incumbent Frank Dale has indicated he may change his mind on retirement, according to The Mississauga News.[13]

Brampton

Mayor

In October 2017, incumbent Brampton Mayor Linda Jeffrey announced her intent to run for a second term.[14]

In July, John Sprovieri announced his intention to run for Mayor of Brampton.[16]

Registered candidates

Omar Mansoury has withdrawn.

Debates

Brampton Board of Trade is hosting debates of city council candidates throughout the day on September 17, 2018, through live stream, concluding with a Mayoral debate. Brown, Gosal, Jackson, Jeffrey, and Sprovieri were invited to the event. Questions were pre-selected from membership. According to the Guardian, the majority of the event saw "Brown and Sprovieri focusing much of their attention on Jeffrey’s record and vice versa."[17]

The first Mayoral debate to allow physical attendance will be held September 20, 2018, at Sheridan College, Davis Campus, through The Pointer, an online news outlet for Brampton.[18]

Brampton Focus hosted a debate on September 25 at the Rose Theatre Brampton, inviting Jeffrey, Brown, Gosal, and Sprovieri. Media reports suggest that the debate was often drowned out by cheering and jeering.[19]
