The official agent of each candidate must file an audited financial statement with the Chief Electoral Officer four months after election day. The statement reports on the finances of a candidate's campaign in the candidate's candidacy period. For detailed information about what must be included, see section 63 of The Election Financing Act.
The candidacy period begins for most candidates on the day they are nominated by their respective constituency association or registered party. For other candidates, it begins when they file nomination papers or when they make a self-declaration of candidacy.
The candidacy period ends on August 14, 2017. All candidates nominated under The Election Financing Act or The Elections Act are required to file a statement for their candidacy period. The filing deadline for the 2017 Point Douglas byelection is October 13, 2017, however, in some circumstances it is possible to have the deadline extended.
Candidates who received 10% of the valid votes in their electoral division are eligible for reimbursement. The amount of reimbursement will be shown on this page once the return has been finalized.
