Key facts of violation

As the official agent for the electoral campaign of Gary Oosterhof, the Conservative Party of Canada candidate in the electoral district of Kingston and the Islands during the 44th federal general election (held on September 20, 2021), Anthony Hall was required by subsection 477.59(1) of the Canada Elections Act (the Act) to provide the Candidate's Electoral Campaign Return and other required documents (Return) to the Chief Electoral Officer, outlining the financing and expenses for the candidate's electoral campaign.

An extension of the filing deadline until March 21, 2022, was requested and granted by the Chief Electoral Officer. On December 8, 2022, the official agent submitted a Return that was deemed incomplete as it did not include the Auditor’s Report, which was required. On December 9, 2022, Elections Canada requested the official agent submit the Auditor’s Report. As of May 3, 2023, the Auditor’s Report had not been submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer, consequently, the Return remains outstanding.

There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Anthony Hall failed to provide the Return, as required by subsection 477.59(1) of the Act.
