Welcome to the website for Manitoba's Commissioner of Elections.

It is the job of the Commissioner to ensure Manitoba's election law is complied with and enforced (The Elections Act and The Election Financing Act).

To do this job, the Commissioner has the authority to:

  • conduct investigations
  • prosecute offences
  • apply to the court for injunctions (during an election)
  • where a prosecution is not required, issue a formal caution
  • enter into compliance agreements

The Commissioner of Elections has jurisdiction over provincial election law only. This does not include non-compliance or enforcement matters relating to municipal or federal elections.
