Provincial and municipal political parties and independent candidates must file financial reports each year.
Political parties and their authorities, as well as authorized independent candidates and authorized independent MNAs, must file annual financial reports that account for their revenue and expenditures to ensure transparency. On a nearly annual basis, we also conduct a statistical analysis to draw up a detailed portrait of the financing of all political parties.
These financial reports do not contain any confidential information.
Some copies of the terms of reference accessible below are not those included in the financial reports filed by April 30, 2015 by the official representatives of the authorized political parties, which are accessible above.
A few changes to reflect the exact nature of the amounts contributed in public financing were made in collaboration with each of the parties involved. The amended entry will appear on the first page of the forms in question.
Under the Act respecting elections and referendums in municipalities (AERM), the financial reports of authorized municipal political parties are made public. Original signed reports are available upon request from the municipality.
These reports contain an income statement, a balance sheet, a statement of cash flow, and a list of individuals who contributed more than $50 to the party during the year (as of January 2017).
From 2011 to 2016, we have produced statistical reports on the financial reports of political parties. These reports are detailed portraits of municipal political parties. They assess the changes made to political authorizations granted, and the by-elections that were held over the course of the year.
