Third Party Advertisers
Elections Alberta has updated and created new resources for third party advertisers to account for new legislation approved by the legislative assembly in December 2016. The new legislation was a result of the passing of Bill 35, the Fair Elections Financing Act, which significantly impacts electoral financing rules in Alberta.
Third Party Advertisers are persons, corporations or groups that have incurred or plan to incur $1,000 for election advertising, or accepted or plan to accept $1,000 in election advertising contributions, and are therefore required to register with Elections Alberta. Elections Alberta is responsible for the management of registration, reporting and disclosure of third parties.
