Semi-annually, the Political Process Financing Act requires the official representative of each registered political party to file a financial return with the Supervisor of Political Financing disclosing the sources of political contributions, other revenues, and details as to how those funds were expended. Annually, the official representative of each registered district association is required to file a similar financial return. Within 90 days of polling day, the official representative of each registered independent candidate must file a similar financial return.
Following their respective conventions, the official representative of each registered leadership contestant and the official representative of each registered nomination contestant is required to file a financial return with the Supervisor.
Following each provincial general election or by-election, the chief agent of each registered political party and the official agent of each candidate is required to file an electoral financial return. Also, the chief financial officer of each third party that registered for the election is required to file an advertising expenditure report with the Supervisor.
All financial returns are available for public inspection during ordinary business hours at the office of Elections New Brunswick. Below, we have made available any financial returns that report political contributions. Note that contributions made to registered district associations and official candidates are reported in the financial returns of their respective registered political parties.
The financial returns have been provided in portable document format (PDF) and are in the official language in which they were filed with the Supervisor.
