Political Parties

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; and
  • have constituency associations and candidates.

For a full list of rules and complete details please see the CFO Handbook for Political Parties.
