Elections for mayors, councils, and school boards in B.C. will be held every four years, starting with the next term.
The province announced Tuesday that it will switch from a three-year to a four-year cycle.
The next scheduled election, this November, will be at the end of the current three-year terms, and the following election will be October 2018.
All other provinces are on four-year municipal cycles.
The Local Government Elections Task Force had recommended the change, and the Union of B.C. Municipalities and the BC School Trustees Association supported it.
