What are the filing requirements for third parties?

All registered third parties must file a financial statement using a prescribed form. Third party advertisers whose contributions and total expenses are equal to or less than $10,000 are not required to file an auditor’s report with the financial statement. A registered third party whose contributions or total expenses exceed $10,000 are required to file an auditor’s report with the financial statement.

The deadline to file financial statements and auditor’s reports in the prescribed forms for the 2018 election is 2 p.m. on March 29, 2019. Prescribed forms will be released in 2018 by the provincial government. If a registered third party does not file their financial statement or exceeds their expense limit, they cannot register in the next election.
