Political parties in Ontario must be registered with Elections Ontario. There is no fee to register a political party. Successful registration allows a party to:

  • receive contributions and issue tax receipts
  • finance the party’s political activities in a campaign period
  • be reimbursed for campaign expenses
  • have constituency associations and candidates

In this section you will find information on how to form, register and complete financial filings for political parties.

For information on spending limits, eligible contributions and contribution limits, and political advertising, including social media rules, please see our other rules section.
