Key facts of violation

As the financial agent for the People’s Party of Canada Bourassa Electoral District Association, Felipe Cuellar Mendez was required, under section 473 of the Canada Elections Act (the Act), to provide the Chief Electoral Officer with the Registered Association Financial Transactions Return and other required documents (Returns), for the years 2020 and 2021, within six months of the date of its deregistration. Since the People's Party of Canada Bourassa Electoral District Association was deregistered on April 30, 2021, the deadline to submit the Returns was November 1, 2021.

As of July 5, 2023, Elections Canada records indicated that the two Returns were still outstanding.

There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Felipe Cuellar Mendez failed to provide the Returns, in contravention of section 473 of the Act.
