INFORMATION ON DONATIONS:
We record your donations for each calendar year and send you a receipt for your donation the following year (usually in February). This will allow you to receive your tax refund prior to doing your income tax for the year. All donations to your riding association are recorded and reported by the riding’s financial agent, as well as the national party’s chief financial agent.

You are able to donate up to $1,550 per calendar year to a federal riding association. In addition, you may donate a further $1,550 to the national party. During a national election, you may donate an additional $1,550 to the campaign. Regardless of the amount, every little bit counts, and OSCA appreciates your support.

OSCA can only accept personal donations from Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada. Under Elections Canada rules, corporate donations can no longer be accepted. If making a payment by cheque or credit card, please ensure you are paying with a personal cheque or a personal credit card. Corporate cheques and business credit cards cannot be accepted.

As a registered electoral district association (EDA), OSCA issues tax receipts for all donations in accordance with Elections Canada requirements:
