Financial Period - Campaign

Campaign period reporting is required by political parties and candidates to report all revenue, expenses, assets and liabilities for the campaign period. Campaign returns are due 6 months after voting day for political parties and 4 months after voting day for candidates.  For a by-election, only parties that run a candidate must file a campaign return for the by-election.

For a Provincial General Election held in accordance with section 38.1(2) of the Election Act, the campaign period begins on February 1 and ends two months after polling day.  For a by-election or general election held other than in accordance with section 38.1(2), the campaign period begins with the issuance of the Writs of Election and ends two months after polling day.

Political parties that have revenue or expenses exceeding $1,000 for the reporting period are required to file audited financial statements.
