Important note

Following a recent Alberta Court decision, prospective candidates will no longer have to pay a $1,000 deposit to file for nomination.

Elections Canada is applying this change across the country, in order to maintain consistent federal election rules.

The Political Financing Handbook for Candidates and Official Agents has not yet been updated to reflect this change.  If you have questions about nominations, please contact the Political Financing Support Network:  1-800-486-6563.
