Candidate Election Returns
General Election 2011
According to Manitoba's Election Financing Act, the official agent of every candidate must file an audited financial return with the Chief Electoral Officer four months after election day. The return reports on the finances of a candidate's campaign in the candidate's candidacy period. For detailed information about what must be included in the return, 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 associations. For other candidates it begins when file nomination papers or when they make a self-declaration of candidacy.
The candidacy period ends for all candidates on December 5, 2011. The filing deadline for the 2011 General Election is February 6, 2012, however in some circumstances it is possible to have a deadline extended.
Candidates who received 10% of the valid votes in their electoral division are eligible for reimbursement under The Election Financing Act.
The amount of reimbursement for each eligible candidate is indicated below.
