Ten candidates will be running for office in the 2021 Richmond by-election.

On Saturday, May 29, Richmond voters will elect one  councillor as a result of a vacancy in November 2020. The new councillor elected will serve along with the other members of Richmond City Council until the next scheduled general local and school election on Oct. 15, 2022. 

Each candidate was given the option to submit a candidate profile, which includes a photo and a 150-word statement and their contact information. The candidate profiles are available at

The candidates, whose name will appear on the 2021 Richmond by-election ballot, are (in alphabetical order):

• Khilvinder Kay Hale

• Ken Hamaguchi—Richmond Community and Education Party

• Jonathan Ho—Richmond Community Coalition

• Sunny Ho

• Andy Hobbs

• Jennifer Huang

• Mark Lee

• Dennis Page

• Karina Reid—RITE Richmond

• John Roston

Some community organizations may host all-candidates meetings to give voters an opportunity to hear from and connect with some or all the candidates. These meetings are not organized by the city but will be listed at when known.

Any community organizations interested in holding an all-candidates meeting should contact the candidates directly, and can ask the Richmond Elections Office to list their meeting online by calling 604-276-4100 or emailing with the date, time, location, list of candidate participants and the organizer’s information.
