(en anglais) Election reform bill passed in time for implementation in 2019 federal vote

The Globe and Mail December 10, 2018

Legislation aimed at preventing foreign interference and constraining the influence of big money in Canadian elections has been approved by the Senate. Bill C-76 passed in the upper house late Monday on a vote of 54-31 and is expected to receive royal assent later this week.

It will limit spending by parties and advocacy groups during the three-month period before an election is officially called, as well as during the official campaign. And it scraps a Tory-instituted provision allowing parties to spend $650,000 for each day a campaign exceeds the minimum 37 days and caps the maximum campaign length at 50 days.

Le projet de loi C-76 a reçu la sanction royale et est devenu loi le 13 décembre 2018.

À défaut d’une réforme, le gouvernement Trudeau promet des élections mieux encadrées

Radio-Canada April 30, 2018

Après plusieurs mois d’attente, le gouvernement fédéral a finalement déposé lundi, à la Chambre des communes, son projet de loi pour mieux encadrer les élections.

Ottawa veut notamment restreindre les dépenses des partis politiques et limiter l’influence étrangère. Si le projet de loi C-76 est adopté, les partis politiques seront ainsi soumis à un plafond de dépenses en publicité partisane, qui ne pourront dépasser 1,5 million de dollars en période préélectorale.

Le projet de loi dont il est question dans l’article est le projet de loi C-76.

(en anglais) Federal Liberals set to introduce stricter rules, more transparency for political fundraising

National Post May 30, 2017

Canada's political fundraising rules are getting another overhaul, as the Liberal government is set to introduce a bill that will force all parties to follow stricter standards on transparency in fundraising events.

The government is still working on a larger-scale package of reforms to election rules, expected in the fall.

Under current rules, there are two general loopholes available to third parties: they only need to report contributions made in the six months leading up to an election writ, and during an election they only have spending limits on advertising. The costs of hiring staff, conducting polls, holding rallies, running a website and any other activities that don't directly fit the category of "advertising" are not regulated by Elections Canada, as they are for political parties.
