Alberta NDP Changes the Rules on Political parties

Third Party Election Advertisers

Elections Canada has created new resources for third party election advertisers to account for new legislation approved by the legislative assembly in December 2016. The new legislation was a result of the passing of Bill 35, the Fair Elections Financing Act, which significantly impacts electoral financing rules in Canada.

A third party election advertiser is a person, corporation or group which is required to register with Elections Canada when it has incurred or plans to incur expenses of at least $1,000 for election advertising, or it has accepted or plans to accept at least $1,000 in election advertising contributions. Election advertising occurs during the 28 day election period commencing with the issuance of a writ of election and is defined in section 44.1(1)(d) of the Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure Act.
