Who are the Senate Candidates?

Becoming a Senate Candidate is a 2-step process: Registration and Nomination. Only candidates that have completed both steps will be listed on the Senate Election Ballot.

Step 1: Register

All Senate Candidates must complete the registration process under the Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure Act. This process provides Elections Alberta with information on the potential candidate, their Chief Financial Officer, location of records and their financial institution for their accounts for contributions and expenses for their campaign. This process starts the financial component of the candidate’s campaign and the information, as well as subsequent financial disclosures can be found at https://efpublic.elections.ab.ca/efEvent.cfm?MID=FE_S_2021_C&OFSFID=27.

Step 2: Nomination

All Senate Candidates must be nominated for election by 500 electors in Alberta and provide a $4000 deposit to Elections Alberta. All nomination signatures must be collected in person and be accompanied by the elector’s name and physical address. Nomination papers must be submitted to Elections Alberta by September 20 at 2 pm for review and acceptance. Only those candidates that have successfully completed this step will be listed on the ballot.
