When Should I Complain?

The Commissioner of Canada Elections encourages anyone who believes an offence has been committed under the Act to contact the office. Individuals who wish to submit a complaint are urged to do so as soon as possible following the alleged offence and should provide as much detail as possible to support their allegation, including any supporting documents.

Under his mandate, the Commissioner can only address complaints related to federal elections. For this reason, the Commissioner cannot pursue complaints related to electoral events in other jurisdictions.
