Deputy Commissioner takes administrative action against 10 individuals who failed to submit campaign returns
Gatineau, May 3, 2022
The Commissioner of Canada Elections (CCE) announced today the publication of 10 administrative monetary penalties (AMPs) to address violations under the Canada Elections Act (the Act) arising out of the 2019 federal general election. In order to maintain transparency, and as required by the Act, summaries of AMPs are published on the CCE’s website.
The Commissioner has delegated to the Deputy Commissioner the power to issue Notices of Violations imposing AMPs of up to $500 for individuals. It is in this capacity that the Deputy Commissioner issued Notices of Violation to:
- five official agents who failed to produce the required candidate’s electoral campaign returns within four months after polling day;
- five financial agents who failed to produce the required nomination contestant’s campaign return within four months following the selection date (or polling day, if the selection day falls within 30 days of an electoral period).
AMPs are a tool the Office of the CCE can use to address various types of violations. They aim to promote compliance with the Act. More information about AMPs can be found in our Policy for the Administrative Monetary Penalty Regime.
