Municipal Elections Compliance Audit Committee


The Upper Canada District School Board is accepting applications for the Municipal Elections Compliance Audit Committee.

Interested candidates must apply by August 12, 2022. Review the full committee and terms of reference and eligibilities requirements here.


Election Compliance Audit Committee Purpose
In accordance with the Municipal Elections Act, 1996
(“MEA”), the Upper Canada District School Board will approve an Election Compliance Audit Committee to consider compliance audit applications with regard to trustee candidates’ financial statements filed under Section 88.33 to 88.37 of the MEA for the 2022 election.

The purpose of the Election Compliance Audit Committee is to:

a)  Consider a compliance audit application received from an elector and decide whether it should be granted or rejected;
b)  If the application is granted, appoint an auditor;
c)  Receive the auditor’s report;
d)  Consider the auditor’s report and decide whether legal proceedings should be commenced; and
e)  Recover the costs of conducting the audit from the applicant if there were no apparent contraventions and if there appears to be no reasonable grounds for having made the application.

Membership eligibility and term of membership
Committee members should possess a knowledge of the campaign finance rules of the MEA so they can make independent decisions on the merits of the applications.  As the committee will operate as a quasi-judicial committee, prior experience on a committee, task force or tribunal would also be an asset.

Applications will not be accepted from:

  • Employees or officers of the Upper Canada District School Board;
  • Trustees of the Upper Canada District School Board;
  • Candidates in the election for which the Committee is established or family members or employees of same, or any person connected to a candidate through an employment, contractual, business or partnership relationship; or
  • Any person who is or intends to volunteer or seek employment to assist any candidate in the election for which the Committee is established, including auditing or preparing trustee candidate financial statements.
