​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.

Certain individuals are ineligible to be appointed to the NCAC, including:

  • Any candidate or registered third party advertiser in the 2018 Municipal Election
  • Any individual who has provided, or is committed to providing, professional advice to a candidate or registered third party advertiser
