2014 Candidate Financial Statements
Section 78 of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, requires that every
person that has filed a nomination paper with the Township of Tiny to
participate as a candidate in the Municipal Elections (even those
persons who subsequently withdraw their candidacy) file a financial
statement with the Township Clerk no later than 2:00 p.m. on March 27,
The financial statements detail the income and expenses incurred during a candidate’s campaign. The Municipal Elections Act, 1996 does not require the Clerk or the
municipality to analyze or review the financial statements for accuracy
or correctness. The Clerk needs only to determine whether or not a candidate has failed to pay any campaign surplus to the municipality or has incurred expenses in excess of the spending limit for the office.
Pursuant to the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, the official copies of
the candidates’ financial filing statements are the hard copies filed
manually with the Clerk. These documents are
public documents and are available for inspection at the Clerk’s
Department during normal business hours. Any
person may make extracts from the documents and is entitled to copies of
the documents but in accordance with Section 88(10) of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, the information
obtained shall only be used for election purposes.
Section 88(9.1) of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996 provides that
the Clerk shall make the documents filed under sections 78 and 79.1
available at no charge for viewing by the public on a website or in another electronic format as soon as possible after the
