Candidate and Registered Third-Party Financial Statements

Compliance Audit 

The Municipal Elections Act (MEA) provides that an elector who is entitled to vote in an election and believes on reasonable grounds that a candidate or a registered third party advertiser has contravened a provision of the MEA relating to election campaign finances may apply for a compliance audit of the candidate’s or registered third party advertiser’s campaign finances, even if a financial statement has not been filed.

Joint Compliance Audit Committee

The Compliance Audit Committee is mandated by the Municipal Elections Act (MEA).  The Act requires that, before October 1st in an election year, Council establish a compliance audit committee for the purposes of Section 88.33 of the Act relative to a possible contravention of the Act's election campaign finance provisions.


The Compliance Audit Committee is an investigative/adjudicative body created to enforce provincially enacted laws related to municipal election campaign funding.


The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury has established a Joint Compliance Audit Committee with the lower-tier municipalities of the County of Simcoe and the City of Orillia.


The Committee's purpose is to consider these compliance audit applications and decide whether it should be granted or rejected.  If granted, the Committee would then proceed as follows:

  • To appoint an auditor
  • To consider the auditor's report and decide whether legal proceedings should be commenced
  • To recover the costs of conducting the audit from the applicant if there was no apparent contravention or if there appears to be no reasonable grounds for having made the application.

After receiving an application, the Clerk will provide it to the Joint Compliance Audit Committee within ten days. All reasonable notice of meetings will be given to the public, candidate, or third party advertiser.
