Mayor & Council

The City of St. Catharines is governed by a Mayor and 12 councillors, who are elected every four years.

The Mayor is elected at large, which means all citizens eligible to vote choose from the same mayoral candidates when casting a ballot. By contrast, councillors are elected to represent one of six wards. Voters within a specific ward elect two councillors.

The Mayor of St. Catharines is Brian McMullan.

St. Catharines wards and councillors are:

  • Ward 1 Merritton: Jeff Burch and Jennifer Stevens
  • Ward 2 St. Andrew's: Matthew Harris and Joseph Kushner
  • Ward 3 St. George's: Peter Secord and Laura Ip 
  • Ward 4 St. Patrick's: Mathew Siscoe and Mark Elliott
  • Ward 5 Grantham: Dawn Dodge and Bill Phillips
  • Ward 6 Port Dalhousie: Len Stack and Bruce Williamson
