Compliance Agreements



Compliance Agreement

This notice is published by the Commissioner of Canada Elections, pursuant to section 521 of the Canada Elections Act, S.C. 2000, c. 9.

On November 15, 2002, the Commissioner of Canada Elections, pursuant to section 517 of the Canada Elections Act, entered into a compliance agreement with the contracting party, of the Town of Denbigh, in Ontario, Canada.

In this agreement, the contracting party acknowledges having breached paragraph 281(d) of the Canada Elections Act during the general election held on November 27, 2000, by applying for a ballot to which he was not entitled at an advance poll on November 20, 2000, in the electoral district of Durham. The contracting party's application for registration and special ballot had already been accepted in the electoral district of Hastings–Frontenac–Lennox and Addington. He subsequently also voted pursuant to that special ballot on November 21, 2000, with the mistaken belief that an elector owning two properties in distinct electoral districts could vote twice.

Prior to the conclusion of the agreement, the Commissioner of Canada Elections has taken into account that the contracting party has contributed to the works of a registered non-partisan charitable organization, the Canadian Cancer Society, located in the city of Toronto, in the province of Ontario, as a recognition of the seriousness of the offence.

In summary, the agreement required the contracting party to:
