Candidates are persons who seek to be elected as Members of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta. Candidates can be endorsed by political parties or can run as independents. All candidates must register with Elections Alberta and file a financial return within four months after Election Day. The return is required even if the candidate withdraws or their registration is cancelled by Elections Alberta.
Elections Alberta publishes summary financial statement information as it was submitted to us, including a list of contributor names and amounts for contributions over $250 in aggregate (prior to January 1, 2013 the contribution disclosure threshold was over $375). After our audit review processes are complete and adjustments have been made as applicable, we publish the final financial statement and contributor list.
To view candidates’ financial statements and contributor lists, click on the year or event on the left menu, then use the search options. Tip: After clicking “Search”, you may need to scroll down to see the information.
