Elections P.E.I., in accordance with the Election Expenses Act, has adjusted the annual contribution limit to a political party in a calendar year.

Section 12.2 of the states that, effective each Jan. 1 after the Jan. 1 referred to in subsection (1), the chief electoral officer shall adjust the amount determined under this section for the previous Jan. 1 by adding $50 to the amount.

Tim Garrity, P.E.I.’s chief electoral officer, said the annual contribution limit for the 2020 calendar year has been set at $3,050, which is an increase of $50 per person.

“Keep in mind, contributions to political parties can only be accepted by residents of Prince Edward Island. Contributions from anonymous donors, trade unions and companies or corporations are no longer permitted under current legislation.”
