Candidate Registration

As of January 1, 2014, the Local Authorities Election Act Section 147.21 requires eligible individuals who intend to run for future municipal elections to register with the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo before accepting any campaign contributions, including the funds of the candidate. These individuals must file an “Application for Registration of Notice of Intent to Become a Candidate for Municipal Office” with the Municipality setting out:

  1. the full name and address of the candidate;
  2. the address where the records of the candidate are maintained and where any communications may be addressed;
  3. names and addresses of financial institutions where campaign contributions will be deposited; and
  4. names of signing authorities of all of the financial institutions listed.

Where there is any change in information required to be provided in the application, the registered candidate shall notify the Municipality in writing within 48 hours after the change.

Any candidate who does not adhere to the legislation is guilty of an offence and is liable to a fine of not more than $1,000.  In addition, anyone who is guilty of an offence under the Local Authorities Election Act is ineligible to run as a candidate for any election under this Act for 10 years.

This legislation requiring candidate registration 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.

Please complete the Application for Registration of Notice of Intent to Become a Candidate for Municipal Office and file with the Elections Office (Seventh Floor, 9909 Franklin Avenue, Fort McMurray) before you accept any campaign contributions.
