The Compliance Audit Committee can:

  • consider applications for a compliance audit and therefore grant or reject audit requests within thirty days of receipt;
  • if an audit is granted, appoint an auditor and review the audit report;
  • decide whether legal proceedings shall be commenced following the results of an audit; and
  • decide whether to commence a legal proceeding against a contributor for an apparent contravention, if applicable.

If you are an elector who is eligible to vote in a municipal election and believes on reasonable grounds that a candidate or third party advertiser has contravened the Municipal Elections Act, relating to election campaign finances, you can request an audit for the candidate or third party advertiser's campaign finances.
