Election Commissioner

In Alberta, the Election Commissioner has the authority to investigate violations, or potential violations, of Part 5.1 Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure and Part 8 Third Party Advertising of the Local Authorities Election Act (LAEA) as well as potential breaches of the Alberta Senate Election Act (ASEA).

Complaints in relation to Parts 5.1 or Part 8 of the LAEA, or any complaint in relation to the ASEA, should be directed to their attention.
