The federal Liberal Party nomination in Guelph has opened.

Interested people who are seeking the nomination can put their names forward. This comes after Guelph’s MP Lloyd Longfield decided not to seek re-election in the next federal election.

In the meantime he will continue to serve as MP and in his role as chair of the standing committee on science and research.

While the election isn’t scheduled until October 2025 the Liberals are a minority government so an election could happen at any point before Oct. 20, 2025.

A date for nomination selection has yet to be determined. The opening of the nomination gives interested people a chance to formally submit their intention to the federal Liberal Party, said in a press release from the Guelph Federal Liberal Association.

At a Guelph Liberals event in November Longfield said he will work hard with whoever the next Liberal candidate is, stated in the release.

Guelph city councillor Dominique O’Rourke announced in December that she will be seeking to become the federal Liberal Party candidate for Guelph.

People interested in seeking nomination can contact their local riding association.
