Canada Elections Act
Marginal note:Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act
403.22 (1) If the boundaries of an electoral district are revised as a result of a representation order under section 25 of the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act, a registered association for the electoral district may, before the day on which the representation order comes into force under subsection 25(1) of that Act, file with the Chief Electoral Officer a notice that it will be continued as the registered association for a particular electoral district described in the representation order. The notice must be accompanied by a consent signed by the leader of the registered party with which it is affiliated.
Marginal note:Effect of continuation
(2) If a notice has been filed under subsection (1), on the coming into force of the representation order, the registered association is continued as the registered association for the electoral district specified in the notice and assumes all the rights and obligations of the association for the former electoral district.
(3) Any registered association in an electoral district whose boundaries are revised as a result of a representation order under section 25 of the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act that does not give a notice under subsection (1) is deregistered on the day on which the representation order comes into force under subsection 25(1) of that Act and, despite paragraph 403.01(c), may transfer goods or funds to the registered party with which it is affiliated or to any of its registered associations in the six months after that day. Any such transfer is not a contribution for the purposes of this Act.
(4) As soon as a proclamation is issued under section 25 of the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act relating to a representation order, an application may be made under section 403.02 for the registration of an electoral district association for an electoral district that is created by — or whose boundaries are revised as a result of — the order. Any resulting registration does not take effect before the order comes into force.
Marginal note:Applicant deemed to be electoral district association
(5) The applicant in an application referred to in subsection (4) is deemed to be an electoral district association as of the date on which the application is received by the Chief Electoral Officer.
