2022 Candidate Financials>
Candidates are responsible for keeping records of the financial activities related to their campaign. Candidates are required to file a Financial Statement – Form 4 for each campaign showing financial activity from the day the nomination paper is filed until the end of the campaign period (January 3, 2023). Candidates who have withdrawn will still be required to complete a financial statement showing financial activity from the day the nomination paper is filed until the day their withdrawal is filed. For candidates who raised or spent more than $10,000, their financial statement must be audited by a licensed auditor under the Public Accounting Act, 2004.
For more information, review the 2022 Candidates’ Guide from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing.
Financial statements are public documents and are posted on the City’s Open Data platform in their entirety, including the names and addresses of all those who contributed over $100. The Municipal Elections Act, 1996 requires the City Clerk to make a copy of the financial statements publicly available. The financial statements are scanned and therefore are not accessible to screen readers, however the Office of the City Clerk will provide the information in an alternate format upon request.
