Joint Compliance Audit Committee

The Municipal Elections Act requires a municipal Council, before October 1st in an election year, to 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 Town of Midland has partnered with the following Simcoe County municipalities to appoint a Compliance Audit Committee that will serve jointly for the 2018-2022 Council term:  Clearview, Collingwood, Orillia, Oro-Medonte, Penetanguishene, Ramara, Severn, Springwater, Tay, Tiny, Wasaga Beach and the City of Orillia.  All participating municipalities have passed by-laws to establish the committee and appoint the five (5) members.

An elector who is entitled to vote in the municipal election and believes on reasonable grounds that a candidate or registered third party advertiser has contravened a provision of the Municipal Elections Act relating to election campaign finances may file an Application for a Compliance Audit.

The Joint Compliance Audit Committee is responsible for reviewing compliance audit applications submitted by an elector(s) and decide whether it should be granted or rejected.  The meetings of the Joint Compliance Audit Committee are open to the public; however, the Committee may deliberate in private.

If granted, the Committee would then proceed to:

  • Appoint an auditor
  • Consider the auditor's report and decide whether legal proceedings should be commenced
  • 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.

The County of Simcoe Clerk will facilitate the compliance audit process. The Municipal Clerk, within ten (10) days of receiving an application, will provided it to the Joint Compliance Audit Committee. All reasonable notice of meetings to the public, candidate or third party advertiser, and applicant will be provided.
