Contributions

Only persons ordinarily resident in Alberta may make political contributions to political parties, constituency associations, candidates, nomination contestants or leadership contestants (political entities).

A contribution is any money, real property, goods or services, or the use of real property, goods or services, provided to or for the benefit of a political entity without compensation from the political entity to the donor.

The above political entities must be registered with Elections Alberta prior to accepting contributions. Once registered, political parties may accept contributions at any time; constituency associations may accept contributions at any time except during a campaign period for an election; candidates may accept contributions only during a campaign period for an election; nomination contestants may accept contributions only during a campaign period for a nomination contest; and leadership contestants may accept contributions only during a campaign period for a leadership contest.
