How to Register or De-register Constituency Associations

Constituency associations in Ontario must be registered with Elections Ontario. By registering, a constituency association is able to receive contributions and issue tax receipts, finance its political activities and endorse candidates.

Before you can apply to be registered as a constituency association with Elections Ontario you must:

  • appoint a chief financial officer (CFO);
  • appoint an auditor; and
  • meet any pre-registration requirements of your political party.

There is no fee to register a constituency association.

When you fill out forms please ensure:

  • all information is accurate and complete (inaccurate information will cause delays and may be a contravention of the Election Finances Act); and
  • information is typed or printed clearly on the form.

For complete information on registering or de-registering a constituency association please see the CFO Handbook for Constituency Associations.
