Data lens: Campaign financing for 2021 Calgary ward elections

LiveWire Calgary continues the deep dive into the 2021 municipal election finances with a look at the funds raised—and expended—by the campaigns.

Included in the data lens data set are the campaigns that filed their campaign disclosure forms by March 1. These charts will be updated if any candidates file before the March 11 penalty date.

The chart below shows the relationship between individual campaigns ability to fundraise, the number of donors they were able to get donations from (over $50), and the percentage of the vote they won in their ward race.

The campaign fundraising totals below include the campaign period only. No pre-campaign contributions, which for some candidates go back to 2018, have been included.
