Detailed information for political entities

A political entity can be a person or an organization. A political entity actively supports or opposes the election of certain candidates.

In this section you will find information for the following political entities:

  •  Political parties
  •  Candidates
  •  Constituency associations
  •  Leadership contestants
  •  Nomination contestants
  •  Third parties

For each political entity, we provide information about registration, financial filing and important dates. You will also find details about campaign spending limits, rules for political advertising, rules for canvassers and how to find financial statements.

If there is any discrepancy between the content on this website and the content in the CFO Handbooks for political entities, the handbooks reflect Elections Ontario’s current policies and practices.
