Non-compliant contributions claimed to political entities

Summary

Since June 10, 2016, the Chief Electoral Officer has the power to claim a contribution (or a portion thereof) from a political entity if there is convincing evidence that the contribution in question contravenes electoral laws—regardless of the date on which it was made.

Previously, the Chief Electoral Officer was not allowed to do so if had been five years or more since the contribution in question was made.
