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. The donor's postal code may differ from that of the candidate's or party's municipality because the donor may have more than one residence or may have moved in between making two contributions.

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 has been modified. During the same calendar year, a single elector may make total contributions of no more than $100 in money, goods and services to each party or authorized independent candidate.

Between January 1 and December 31 of a year in which a general election is held, an elector may make an additional contribution of $100. In the case of a by-election, an elector may make such an additional contribution between the date the seat becomes vacant and the 30th day after the poll. An elector may make such an additional contribution to each authorized independent candidate and each authorized political party.

In addition to the amounts referred to above, a candidate may make total contributions of no more than $800 for his or her own benefit, or for that of the party for which he or she is a candidate. During a general election or by-election, a candidate may contribute this additional amount between the date his or her nomination paper is accepted and December 31 of the year in which the election is held.

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.


Information on the name and address of the contributor provided by the search engine may differ from that recorded in the political entity's financial report.
