If a qualified elector believes on reasonable grounds that a candidate has contravened the Municipal Elections Act relating to election campaign finances, they can make an application for a compliance audit, which will then be considered by the Compliance Audit Committee. Compliance audit requests must be submitted to the Clerk, setting out the reasons for the elector's belief, within 90 days of the latest of the following:

  • The filing date under s.88.30 (March 31, 2023)
  • The date the candidate filed a financial statement, if the statement was filed within 30 days after the the applicable filing date (up to April 30, 2023)
  • The candidate's supplementary filing date, if any, under section 88.30
  • The date on which the candidate's extension, if any, under section 88.23 (6) expires
