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, 2015. 

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 documents are filed.
