Bill 35, the Fair Elections Financing Act (FEFA), was tabled in the legislature on November 28, 2016 with much of the FEFA coming into force on that date; the Bill received Royal Assent on December 14, 2016.  The Bill introduces changes to the Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure Act (EFCDA) that have an immediate and significant impact on all political parties, constituency associations, candidates, leadership contestants, and third party advertisers.  In addition, any person seeking endorsement as a candidate for a party in an electoral division is now required under the EFCDA to register as a nomination contestant and file financial returns with Elections Alberta.

Elections Alberta is working to update all existing resources and to create additional resources to account for the new legislation.  As resources become available, they will be posted on this website.

A political party is an organization that aims to elect candidates to the Legislative Assembly. Anyone can form a political party, but it is only parties that have registered with the Chief Electoral Officer that can be included on a ballot. How to form a political party in Alberta can be found in our FAQ section.

This section contains resources for political parties, including information about how to register with the Chief Electoral Officer, a list of contact information of registered political parties and guides on various topics, such as filing financial reports and the responsibilities of financial agents.

There are currently 10 registered political parties in Alberta which are required to provide updated registration information to Elections Alberta as changes occur. The following information is updated as received from the political parties.
