Election TPAs

An Election Third Party Advertiser engages in election advertising to promote or oppose, or take a position on an issue associated with, a registered party or candidate in an MLA election. An Election Third Party 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 election advertising, or it has accepted or plans to accept at least $1,000 in election advertising contributions.

For a general election, the election advertising period starts on December 1st of the year immediately preceding the election and ends on Election Day. For a by-election, the period starts on the day a Writ of Election is issued and ends on Election Day. Election TPAs are prohibited from advertising outside of these periods.
