Joint Compliance Audit Committee

As a mandatory requirement of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, the Wellington County Municipalities have appointed a Joint Compliance Audit Committee that will serve for the 2022-2026 Term of Council.

The purpose of the Joint Election Compliance Audit Committee is to:

  • Receive reports from the Municipal Clerks with any exceedances of contributions and decide whether to commence legal proceedings;
  • Consider applications for a compliance audit made by electors and decide whether there are reasonable grounds to request an audit;
  • Receive the Auditor’s report and determine whether legal proceedings should be commenced;
  • Provide recommendations as to whether there were reasonable grounds for the compliance audit and whether cost recovery should be requested if no reasonable grounds for the compliance audit were found.
