Municipal Compliance Audit Committee
A joint Municipal Election Compliance Audit Committee has been established by the lower tier municipalities of Huron County. The Committee considers applications requesting compliance audits of candidates’ election campaign finances, any resulting auditors reports and the Clerk’s Report identifying apparent contribution contraventions in accordance with Sections 88.33, 88.34 and 88.35 of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996. The Municipal Election Compliance Audit Committee is an independent body appointed by Council.
Meetings are held on an as required basis if an application is received.
Submitting an application for a compliance audit of a candidate's election campaign finances:
- Must be done by an elector who is entitled to vote in an election
- Reasonable grounds that a candidate has contravened a provision of the Municipal Elections Act
- Must be for a candidate in the municipal election within the applicable Municipality
- Financial Statements must be filed prior to the submission of an application
- Applications concerning election campaign finances for candidates in an area municipality need to be made to the appropriate Municipal Clerk
The application must be made within 90-days after the submission of:
- the candidate's financial statement and auditor's report reflecting the candidate's election finances
- the candidate's supplementary filing date, if any
- the filing date for the final financial statement, or
- the date on which the candidate's extension, if any, expires
What happens after I submit an application to the Township?
- Within 10 days of receiving the application, the Clerk forwards the application to the Municipal Elections Compliance Audit Committee (MECAC).
- Within 30 days of receiving the application, the MECAC reviews it and decides whether it should be granted or rejected.
- The decision of the MECAC may be appealed to the Superior Court of Justice within 15 days of the decision and the Court may make any decision the MECAC could have made.
- If the MECAC decides to grant the application, an auditor -- who is licensed under the Public Accounting Act, 2004 or prescribed persons -- is appointed to conduct a compliance audit of the candidate's election campaign finances.
- The auditor will conduct an audit of the candidate's election campaign finances and will prepare a report outlining any apparent contravention by the candidate. The report is provided to the candidate, the applicant and the Clerk.
- Within 10 days of receiving the report, the Clerk forwards the report to the MECAC. The committee considers the report within 30 days and may commence any legal proceeding against the candidate for any apparent contravention.
