Niagara Compliance Audit Committee
Recent amendments to Municipal Elections Act, 1996 require all municipalities and
local boards to establish a Compliance Audit Committee by October 1 of an election
In compliance with the Act, the municipalities and school boards of the Niagara
Region have cooperatively worked together to establish a Niagara Compliance Audit
The purpose of the Niagara Compliance Audit Committee is to:
- Consider whether to grant or reject a compliance audit request made by an elector.
- Where an audit is granted, appoint an auditor and review the auditor's report.
- In light of the auditor's report, decide whether legal proceedings shall be commenced.
- Advise municipal council or school board on the result of a compliance audit request.
