Affiliation and contribution limits

Two or more affiliated committees are treated as a single committee for the purposes of the contribution limits. This means that all contributions made or received by several affiliated committees count against the same limits.

Affiliation and multicandidate status

Because affiliated committees are treated as one committee for the purposes of the limits, two or more affiliated committees may collectively satisfy the requirements for multicandidate committee status.

Monitoring limits

To facilitate reporting and to avoid exceeding contribution limits, affiliated SSFs should set up a centralized recordkeeping system to ensure that contributions made and received by all the affiliates comply with the limits.

The treasurers of each affiliate are responsible for monitoring contribution limits.
