The quarterly allowance for 2017 is calculated by multiplying the quarterly rate by the number of valid votes a party’s candidates received in the previous general election. The quarterly rate for 2017 is $0.678. A registered party is eligible to receive a quarterly allowance if, in the last general election, it received 2% of valid votes cast province wide, or 5% of valid votes cast in the electoral districts where the registered party endorsed a candidate.
Elections Ontario shall determine an allowance payable to each eligible registered constituency association for each quarter of a calendar year starting from the year 2017.
For 2017, a quarterly amount of $6,250 is assigned to each electoral district which is shared amongst associations based on the percentage of the valid votes their party candidate received in the last election. A party candidate must have received at least 2% of the valid votes cast in order for that party’s constituency association to qualify for the allowance
An allowance is only payable to a registered constituency association for a quarter if all documents that it was required to file with Elections Ontario in the four year period immediately before the quarter have been filed and are complete.
