Campaign contributions are any money, goods or services that are given to candidates for use in their campaign.

If you buy a ticket to a candidate’s fundraiser, the cost of the ticket is a contribution. If you give a candidate a special discount on a good or service for their campaign, the difference between what they were charged and what an average person would be charged is considered to be a contribution.

Any person who is a resident of Ontario may make a contribution to a candidate’s campaign. Federal and provincial political parties, corporations, businesses and trade unions are not eligible to make a contribution.

Corporations and trade unions, as well as individuals, may however register as a third party advertiser or contribute to a third party advertiser.

A maximum of $1,200 can be contributed to a single candidate. This includes the value of any goods or services, as well as money, donated to a single candidate.

You cannot contribute more than $5,000 in total to candidates running for offices on the same council or school board.

Contributions to municipal and school board candidates are not tax deductible.
