Understanding political financing

Training those responsible for financing

Summary

Anyone responsible for the financing of a political party or candidate is required to undergo training on political financing and the auditing of election expenses in provincial elections. This training is also mandatory for elections in municipalities with a population of 5,000 people or more.

Provincial

Official agents, deputies, official representatives, delegates of political parties, party authorities, and authorized candidates must undergo training on their roles and responsibilities regarding political financing and auditing of election expenses.

The official agent and official representative of a political party must complete both components of the training program within 30 days of their appointment. If these roles are performed by different people, the official representative has 30 days to complete the training and the official agent has 10 days to complete the training.

The official agent and official representative of an independent candidate have 10 days to complete training from the time of their appointment.

The current status of political personnel training (ongoing, completed or overdue) is posted on our website.
