Political Parties

Expenses limits for the 41st Provincial General Election have been established for candidates, political parties and third party advertising sponsors. Learn more.

Political parties are organizations that have a primary purpose to elect candidates to the Legislative Assembly. Anyone can form a political party, but only parties registered with Elections BC can appear on a ballot, issue tax receipts, and incur election expenses.

A political party should advise Elections BC as soon as possible of the date of a leadership contest. For more information, visit the Leadership Contestants page.
