Compliance audits


Each municipality and school board must appoint a compliance audit committee. Every candidate and registered advertiser must file a financial statement reporting contributions and expenses.

The City of Waterloo's Compliance Audit Committee considers applications to audit campaign finances of candidates and registered advertisers that have taken part in a municipal election.

See the compliance report (PDF) for the 2018 municipal election.
