Businesses in Calgary are not allowed to contribute so much as a dollar to the campaigns of candidates running for federal office or to any national political parties. Individuals may make a donation to federal candidates, but the amount cannot exceed $1,100; candidates and political parties are also limited in the amount they can spend during an election. After the election, candidates must transfer any surplus funds to a registered party association, where the money will be used for partisan political purposes and is publicly accounted for.
