Election Accountability Amendment Act

The Election Accountability Amendment Act details future legislative changes to the Election Act, Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure Act and the Senatorial Selection Act.

In an effort to strengthen the disclosure rules that surround the Election Act, the Election Accountability Amendment Act brings new levels of accountability, some of which may improve how both municipal and provincial elections events are held.

The Alberta government is increasing openness and accountability by introducing a series of legislative changes to strengthen election finance and contribution disclosure rules. Bill 7, the Election Accountability Amendment Act, proposes amendments that would also increase democratic accountability and improve how provincial and municipal elections are held.

Changes to Alberta’s current Election Act and Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure Actinclude decreasing the disclosure limit for contributions and requiring quarterly reports from political parties.
