Compliance Audit Committee

The Municipal Elections Act, 1996 requires municipalities to establish a Compliance Audit Committee to deal with complaints regarding election campaign financing. An elector who is entitled to vote in an election and believes on reasonable grounds that a candidate has contravened a provision of the Act relating to election campaign finances may apply for a compliance audit of the candidate’s election campaign finances.

Municipalities must appoint a Committee by October 1st, 2018 of the election year and the appointment is for the term of the new Council.
