Compliance Audit Committee

 The Municipal Election Compliance Audit Committee considers applications requesting compliance audits of candidates or third party advertiser election campaign finances, any resulting auditors’ reports, and the Clerk’s Report identifying apparent contribution contraventions under section 88 of the Municipal Elections Act.


Any requests for a compliance audit of a candidate or registered third party advertiser’s election campaign finances:

  1. must be done by an elector who is entitled to vote in an election
  2. must be on reasonable grounds that a candidate or third party advertiser has contravened a provision of the Municipal Elections Act
  3. must be for a candidate or registered third-party advertiser in the municipal election within the applicable municipality

The request for a compliance audit of a candidate or registered third party advertiser’s election campaign finances must be made within 90 days after the latest of the following dates:

  • candidate or registered third party advertiser filing date
  • date the candidate or registered third party advertiser filed a financial statement, if the statement was filed within 30 days after the applicable filing date
  • candidate or registered third party advertiser’s supplementary filing date, if any
  • date on which the candidate or registered third party advertiser’s extension, if any, expires
