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 third party political advertiser is a person, corporation or group which is required to register with Elections Alberta when it has incurred or plans to incur expenses of at least $1,000 for political advertising, or it has accepted or plans to accept at least $1,000 in political advertising contributions. Political advertising occurs any time outside of the 28 day election period and is defined in section 44.1(1)(g) of the Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure Act.
