A third party is any person or entity that is not a political party, candidate or constituency association, and that engages in political advertising. Third parties include corporations, partnerships, unincorporated businesses and associations, and many other groups.

Third parties in Ontario must obey the rules as outlined in the Election Finances Act. This section provides information about how to register as a third party and how to follow the filing requirements.

For complete guidelines, see our CFO Handbook for Third Parties.

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.
