Candidate Financial Statements
In accordance with Section 88.23 (4) of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996 (MEA), the Clerk shall present a report setting out all candidates in an election and indicating whether each candidate complied with Section 88.25 of the MEA. Click here for the Clerks Report.
For the 2018 municipal election, Section 88 of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, require all candidates for municipal council to file financial statements for all revenues and expenditures incurred during the campaign period by 2:00 p.m. on Friday, March 29th, 2019. Section 88 (9.1) of the Act requires that these statements be made publicly accessible to ensure the transparency and accountability of the electoral process.
Candidates are wholly responsible for the submission of complete and accurate financial statements - the Clerk's Department does not verify or alter in any way the submitted documents. In the event that a candidate's total contributions and expenses do not exceed $10,000, they are not required to submit an accompanying auditor's report with their financial statement. Hard copy originals of submitted financial statements are available for review in the Corporate Services Department at the Township Municipal Office, 2585 King Road, King City.
An elector who is entitled to vote in an election and believes on reasonable grounds that a candidate has contravened a provision of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, relating to election campaign finances may apply for a compliance audit. Applications for a compliance audit are forwarded to the Joint Compliance Audit Committee (JCAC) appointed by the Township of King and other York Region municipalities for review. Please visit the Compliance Audit Committee page for more information.
Applications for a compliance audit must be submitted to the Township Clerk in writing, setting out the reasons for the elector's belief that a contravention of the Municipal Elections Act relating to election campaign finances has occurred. Upon receipt of an application, the Township Clerk must forward the application to the Committee within 10 days, following which the Committee must decide within 30 days of receipt of the application whether to proceed with conducting an audit.
For more information, contact Kathryn Moyle, Director of Corporate Services, and Township Clerk at 905-833-4018.
