Third Party Expense Limits

There are two types of expense limits for third party sponsors.

Directed advertising expense limits are specific to an election area and apply to advertising about a candidate or elector organization. View directed advertising limits in the table below or download the limits here: PDF | CSV

The cumulative advertising expense limit is $150,000.00 and applies to directed and issue advertising in all election areas. The total value of advertising sponsored cannot exceed this limit.

These expense limits apply during the campaign period for general local elections and local by-elections. See our local by-elections page for current dates and information.

If you plan to conduct directed advertising in multiple election areas, or share directed advertising with other third party sponsors, contact the Electoral Finance team at Elections BC.
