Here's who's running in Timmins-James Bay so far

Four parties have announced candidates

Election season is underway in Canada.

The 2021 federal election is Sept. 20.

While it's the early days of the campaign and none of the local candidates are officially registered with Elections Canada yet, some riding associations have named who will be on the ballot.

In Timmins-James Bay, incumbent Charlie Angus, who was first elected in 2004, is returning for his seventh election campaign for the NDP.

Former Timmins mayor Steve Black is the Liberal candidate. Black is also a former city councillor and was the provincial Progressive Conservative candidate in the 2014 election. 

Morgan Ellerton is running for the Conservatives. Ellerton was the runner-up for the local candidacy in the 2019 election, when Kraymr Grenke won the nomination.

Stephen McLeod has been acclaimed as the People's Party of Canada candidate.

Advance polls are slated for Sept. 10-13. Information on poll locations will be on voter information cards that people receive in the mail and on the Elections Canada website after Aug. 24. People who apply by 6 p.m. on Sept. 14 can also vote by mail.
