With the Upcoming municipal election in October, the Municipality wants to remind anyone who intends to run about the rules surrounding campaign donations.
Provincial legislation now requires individuals who intend to run for all future municipal elections to register with the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo before accepting any campaign contributions.
A candidate who is found guilty of not adhering to the legislation will be liable to a fine of not more than $1,000.
The regulation does not apply if the candidate’s entire election campaign is funded exclusively out of the candidate’s own funds, up to a maximum of $10,000.
For more information and the application mentioned above, visit rmwb.ca/elections or call 780-743-7001.
