2023 Political Donations Annual Report

Media Release: Monday, June 24, 2024

Elections Nova Scotia – Elections Nova Scotia (ENS) has published the Political Donations Annual Report for 2023, in accordance with Sections 240 and 251 of the Elections Act (the Act).

The report lists the name and community of each person who contributes $200 or more in the calendar year, and the amount of the donation to registered political parties, Electoral District Associations (EDAs), and registered candidates. An annual contribution limit of $5,000 to a party and its’ related entities or an independent candidate is in place. Only individuals who reside in Nova Scotia are permitted to contribute to a registered political entity. Publishing this information, as prescribed by the Act, helps to enhance transparency of the financial activities of those registered parties, EDAs, and candidates who are required to file.

It is not within the mandate of ENS to review the reports filed by political entities. However, if financial donations are not filed, political parties and EDAs run the risk of becoming de-registered.
