The Donation Rules
There is a $1,200 limit that applies to contributions from individuals. If a person makes more than 1 contribution (e.g. contributes money, contributes goods, and purchases a ticket to a fundraising event), the total value of all the contributions cannot exceed $1,200.
The maximum total amount that a contributor can give to candidates in the same jurisdiction (i.e. running for the same council ) is $5,000.
A business, trade union or organization cannot donate to Jane's campaign. Only individuals.
Only a contribution that is $25 or less can be made in cash. All contributions above $25 must be made by cheque, money order or by a method that clearly shows where the funds came from (such as certain debit, credit or electronic transfer transactions).
The name and address of a contributor under $100.00 is not listed in the official financial statements, but a record must be kept.
Your on-line receipt is your offical receipt. Unfortunately, you cannot claim municipal campaign contributions on your income tax.
