Political financing whistleblower line
Do you want to report a situation or issue relating to political financing? Call us at 1-855-644-9529 or 418-644-9529, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. At other times, you can leave a message at either of these numbers. You can also use our online complaint form.
We will confidentially and securely process the information we receive in accordance with our Personal information management policy (PDF – in French). You have the option of remaining anonymous.
Our whistleblower line gives citizens a means of anonymously reporting situations or issues relating to political financing.
Under the Election Act, the Act respecting elections and referendums in municipalities and the Act respecting school elections to elect certain members of the boards of directors of English-language school service centres, we have powers to review, audit and investigate political financing in the context of provincial, municipal and school elections.
Information from the public can help us exercise these powers.
Political financing covers two types of activities from political entities:
- Someone used your name to make a contribution. They had you pay the contribution, but then reimbursed you (you were a “front”).
- You witnessed an election expense being incurred without being reported as such.
- You witnessed a business or organization paying an expense for a candidate or political party, or providing financial assistance to a candidate or political party in paying an expense.
- You witnessed cash being given to an elected official or political entity.
