Conservatives dominate Liberal fundraising in first quarter with $8.3 million

The Conservative Party raised $8,306,535 in the first quarter of 2023, more than double the amount raised by the Liberals.

The Conservatives’ first quarter funds came from 45,659 donors. The Liberals raised $3,614,224 from 30,720 donors during the same period, according to Elections Canada data.

The Conservative Party said in a press release that the fundraiser is a show of support for Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre.

“The $8,306,535 raised in the first quarter speaks to the growing movement of Canadians putting their hard-earned money behind a leader who listens to them and speaks out on their concerns,” the press release reads.

The NDP raised $1,260,952 from 15,594 donors. The Green Party raised $400,915, the Bloc Québécois raised $322,871 and the People’s Party raised $296,585.

The Conservatives’ total fundraising is down from the nearly $9.7 million they raised in the last quarter of 2022, which set a record for the most funds raised during a non-election quarter. The Liberals raised nearly $5.8 million in the last three months of 2022.
