Campaign Finance

Current Project

“Show Me the Money: Investigating Campaign Finance in Canada” – This SSHRC-funded project is an in-depth investigation of the current state of campaign finance in Canada. It asks three major questions: 1) Who funds Canada’s election campaigns? 2) Who benefits from campaign funding? 3) What are the consequences of money in politics in Canada? It seeks to cast light on the role of money in Canadian democracy, and its differential effects for under-represented population groups.
