Legislation > Box 78 – Row 1 > Annual allowance supports B.C.’s political parties

Amendments to the Election Act will make an annual allowance for political parties permanent.

The Province is making amendments to the Election Act to provide a permanent annual allowance to political parties at the recommendation of the Special Committee to Review Provisions of the Election Act. This allowance will provide eligible parties with $1.75 per vote, based on the number of votes received in the most recent general election. This amount will adjust each following year, based on changes in the Consumer Price Index and the number of votes parties received in the most recent provincial election.
