A total of 21 people have submitted their names for consideration to fill the vacant Ward 6 seat on London City Council.

The seat became vacant when then-Councillor Phil Squire resigned due to his appointment to the  Consent and Capacity board, a provincial panel. Accepting the position left Squire ineligible to sit on municipal council.
