Third Parties

A third party is any person or entity that is not a political party, candidate or constituency association, and that engages in political advertising.

If you plan to conduct political advertising during a general election or a by-election in Ontario, please be advised that there are registration and filing requirements as well as spending limits. These provisions are set out in sections 37.1 to 37.13 of the Election Finances Act.

Elections Ontario’s Compliance Division is available to assist with any questions.
