Filing Guidelines for Political Parties

If you register a political party in Ontario you must follow rules according to the Election Finances Act.

Below is a summary of some of the key filing requirements. For a full list of rules and complete details please see the CFO Handbook for Political Parties.

When you fill out a form, 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.

Please note that filling out these forms is not a replacement for your responsibility to follow auditable bookkeeping practices.

Please refer to the particular forms for information on where they are filed.
