Leadership Contestants

A leadership contestant is an individual seeking the leadership of a registered political party. Leadership contestants must appoint an individual to act as their financial agent, or act as their own financial agent, and file a financing report with Elections BC after a leadership contest.

There are no expense limits for leadership contestants under the Election Act. However, parties may establish limits for their contestants. Elections BC is not responsible for administering these limits.

Tools for leadership contestants

Elections BC’s forms and guides are being updated to reflect amendments to the Election Act affecting electoral finance rules. For more information, contact Provincial Electoral Finance at 1-800-661-8683 or
