Key facts of violation

As the official agent for Mona Fortier, the Liberal Party of Canada‚Äôs candidate for the Ottawa-Vanier electoral district in the 43rd federal general election (held on October 21, 2019), Valérie Marcil was required, under subsection 477.59(10) of the Canada Elections Act (the Act), to provide the Chief Electoral Officer with a report on the payment of a claim or loan and the source of the funds used to pay the claim within 30 days after the payment. The deadline to submit the report was May 20, 2020.

Elections Canada confirmed that the report was submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer on January 21, 2021, or 246 days late.

Therefore, there are reasonable grounds to believe that Valérie Marcil did not provide the report within 30 days after the claims were paid, as required under subsection 477.59(10) of the Act.
