​Niagara’s local area municipalities, school boards and Niagara Region are once again forming a joint compliance audit committee for election campaign finances.

  • Appointing an auditor
  • Reviewing any reports submitted by the auditor
  • Determining if legal proceedings shall be commenced​

Members of the NCAC will receive a retention honourarium of $300 (includes training and mileage) and $200 per meeting (plus mileage). Applicants with a background in accounting, auditing, law, academics, election administration and/or public administration are preferred.
