Disclosure of Grants and Contributions
Elections Canada does not have any grant and contribution programs to report. In accordance with Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat proactive disclosure guidelines, statutory transfer payments are not to be reported. Reimbursements of election expenses to candidates and political parties, payments of quarterly allowances to parties and subsidies to auditors of candidates and registered associations are statutory transfer payments as provided by the Canada Elections Act. These payments are disclosed on Elections Canada's Web site and have been since 1998.
