August 7, 2018
 

Chief Electoral Officer Richard Temporale has entered into a Compliance Agreement with Atlantica Party Association of Nova Scotia in connection with breaches of the Elections Act.

 

The Party agrees it did not meet the requirements of the Elections Act when filing its financial statement for 2017. It also agrees that an outstanding $8,811 loan to the Party exceeds the $5,000 limit allowed under the Act. The Party has committed to provide an audited statement for January 1 to July 31, 2018 that meets the requirements of the Act, and to rectify issues with the non-compliant loan. The Party agrees to do so by August 15, 2018.

 

“Atlantica has admitted the facts, accepted responsibility for their actions, and is actively pursuing remedies to the breaches,” says CEO Temporale. “This Compliance Agreement reflects their commitment to resolve the issues that led to their suspension before the extended deadline expires.”

 

This Notice of Compliance Agreement is published in accordance with sections 294 to 299 of the Elections Act. A summary of the Compliance Agreement is available on the Compliance page of the ENS website at: https://electionsnovascotia.ca/content/compliance
