2019 – Triennial Confirmation of Members of Political Parties

Every three years, at the time of the annual update, registered parties and eligible parties shall provide the Chief Electoral Officer with the names and addresses of 250 electors who are members of their party. The Triennial Confirmation exercise is required so that political parties retain their official status. Here are samples of the forms used for the confirmation exercise.


For this exercise, Elections Canada will send questionnaires to some of the individuals who were identified as members of the party in order to validate their membership information. The members who receive a questionnaire from Elections Canada must return it as soon as possible in the enclosed postage paid pre-addressed envelope so that we can complete our review of the party memberships.
