Since 2018, over 250 donors connected to the development industry gave over $500,000 to Ottawa municipal candidates.

Municipal governments in Ontario make important decisions about bylaw enforcement, height limits, requirements for affordable housing, and other zoning restrictions. A developer may want to change these rules for their benefit, even if it runs counter to the public interest.

Follow the money is a public-interest data-analysis project conducted by Horizon Ottawa. It is a searchable database of campaign contributions to municipal candidates in Ottawa.

Along with a searchable database, Horizon Ottawa also released a comprehensive report that outlines key findings, political and legal context, methodology, and academic research related to campaign contributions to municipal candidates.
