Default

Effect of Default by Candidate
An unsuccessful candidate is subject to the penalties listed, in addition to any other penalty that may be imposed under this Act if the candidate fails to file a document as required under section 88.25 or 88.32 by the relevant date (March 29th, 2019, 2:00 p.m.);

Penalties
In the case of a default the candidate is ineligible to be elected or appointed to any office to which this Act applies, until the next regular election has taken place.  This means that the candidate cannot run in the 2020 election or any by-election before then.

Cessation of penalty
The penalties for a default do not take effect if, no later than 2 p.m. on the day that is 30 days after the applicable day for filing the document, the candidate files the relevant document as required under section 88.25 or 88.32 and pays the clerk a late filing fee of $500. 2016, c. 15, s. 60.

Compliance Audit Committee

The Municipal Elections Act, 1996 makes it mandatory for municipalities to establish a Compliance Audit Committee to deal with complaints regarding election campaign financing in relation to candidates and registered third parties for each election, and to consider reports from the Clerk citing apparent instances of over-contributions.

An elector who is entitled to vote in an election and believes on reasonable grounds that a candidate or a registered third party which is registered in relation to the election in the municipality has contravened a provision of the Act relating to election campaign finances may apply for a compliance audit of the candidate's or registered third party's election campaign finances, even if the candidate or registered third party has not filed a financial statement.

Municipalities must appoint a Committee by October 1 of an election year and the appointment is for the term of the new Council.
