Initial and Subsequent Disclosure Reports

The Electoral Reform Referendum 2018 Act and its regulation requires registered referendum advertising sponsors, opponent and proponent groups to file initial and subsequent disclosure reports with Elections BC.

Initial disclosure reports must be filed within 14 days of sponsoring more than $10,000 in referendum advertising. If an eligible individual contributes more than $250 in referendum contributions since the date of the initial disclosure report, a subsequent disclosure report must be filed within 14 days of receiving those referendum contributions. Subsequent disclosure reports must be filed continuously until the close of voting.

The referendum initial and subsequent disclosure reports filed with Elections BC are scanned and published in the Financial Reports and Political Contributions (FRPC) System.
