 Canada Elections Act
"election period" means the period beginning with the issue of the writ and ending on polling day or, where the writ is withdrawn under subsection 59(1) or is deemed to be withdrawn under section 551, on the day that the writ is withdrawn or deemed to be withdrawn.
(3) For the purposes of this Act, satisfactory proof of an elector's identity and satisfactory proof of residence are established by the documentary proof of the elector's identity and residence that is prescribed by the Chief Electoral Officer.
Subject to this Act, every person who is qualified as an elector is entitled to have his or her name included in the list of electors for the polling division in which he or she is ordinarily resident and to vote at the polling station for that polling division.

 Bill C-2: A Critique
Elections Canada says that C-2 will improve the disclosure of election finance information, and to a large extent this is true: the bill will require the publication of addresses of contributors and information about federal parties' trust funds, for instance.
Three major features of successfully transparent election finance reporting systems in other jurisdictions are missing from both the Canada Elections Act and Bill C-2: prompt reporting by parties, reporting of donations from all points where they are received and prompt publication in electronic format by government.
Elections Canada, supported by a strengthened Canada Elections Act, should be able to at least match the standard of transparency set by the FEC.
