INVITATION TO APPLY

NIAGARA COMPLIANCE AUDIT COMMITTEE - 2014 MUNICIPAL ELECTION
WWW.NIAGARACOMPLIANCEAUDIT.CA

The Municipal Elections Act, 1996, requires all municipalities and local boards to establish a Compliance Audit Committee by October 1 of an election year.

In compliance with the Act, the municipalities and school boards of the Niagara Region cooperatively worked together to establish the Niagara Compliance Audit Committee in 2010.

The purpose of the Niagara Compliance Audit Committee is to:

  • Consider whether to grant or reject a compliance audit request made by an elector
  • Where an audit is granted, appoint an auditor and review the auditor’s report.
  • In light of the auditor’s report, decide whether legal proceedings shall be commenced.
  • Advise municipal council or school board on the result of a compliance audit request.

Applicants shall have:

  • Demonstrated knowledge and understanding of campaign financing rules under the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, as amended.
  • Demonstrated knowledge of quasi-judicial or administrative tribunals.
  • Availability and willingness to attend meetings throughout the Niagara Region.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.

Preference shall be given to applicants that have related experience in law, accounting or academics from related fields.

The term of the Committee will commence in 2014 and continue through to 2018. Municipal Election Candidates have until March 27, 2015 to file their Financial Statements. Any requests for a Compliance Audit will occur after that date. While Compliance Audit requests for the 2014 Municipal Election must be submitted by June 25, 2015, a by-election could result in the need for the Niagara Compliance Audit Committee to sit during the term of Council or School Board.

Remuneration, and appropriate mileage, is under review.

Resumes may be submitted through the Niagara Compliance Audit Committee website or dropped off at your municipal clerk’s office. More information is available through www.niagaracomplianceaudit.ca

Deadline for applications is Friday, August 22, 2014.
