Complaints

If you have a complaint or allegation regarding a violation of the Election Act, or Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure Act (governing provincial elections), or in regard to a violation of the campaign finance or third party advertising provisions of the Local Authorities Election Act (in relation to Parts 5.1 or 8), or the Alberta Senate Election Act, you should submit your complaint or allegation below.

Only complaints or allegations regarding the four Acts listed above should be referred to the Election Commissioner. Matters relating to federal election law violations should be referred to the Commissioner of Canada Elections.

Every complaint or allegation received by the Election Commissioner is reviewed to determine its basis and whether or not an investigation or some other recourse is warranted. As necessary, the Election Commissioner engages the services of contracted personnel to assist with the mandate and resolve matters in a thorough and timely manner.
