Research on contributors

Search for contributions to candidates or political entities authorized or as part of the leadership campaign of a political party (municipal)

The following search engine displays publicly available contributions of $100 or more for the years prior to 2017 and contributions totaling more than $50 from 2017.

We broadcast the last names, first names, postal codes and municipalities of residence of every person who made such contributions to an authorized independent candidate or a political party.

This information is derived from the financial reports of political parties and independent candidates filed with the treasurer of their municipality.

Until June 20, 2013, the total contributions that an elector could make for a calendar year was limited to $1,000 for each political party and each authorized independent candidate. On June 21, 2013, this limit was lowered to $300.

As of January 1, 2017, this limit is lowered to $100 per elector to each political party and to each of the authorized independent candidates, with the option to pay an additional $100 during an election.

In addition, for a candidate from an authorized party or an authorized independent candidate, this limit has been maintained at $1,000. However, the additional $800 for the candidate may only be paid once the candidate's nomination has been accepted.

Leadership campaign of a political party

The total contributions of an elector may not exceed, during the same leadership campaign, the sum of $200. A candidate can pay, for his benefit, contributions that do not exceed the sum of $1,000.
