Research by CBC News has revealed that prominent developers were among the top donors to the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario in 2016, helping it amass more money than any political party in this province has ever collected in a year.

The Ontario PC fundraising machine kicked into high gear in 2016, collecting $12.9 million, more than double the Ontario Liberal Party's total. This happened as reforms were being introduced to ban corporations and unions from donating to the province's political parties, and as Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne's approval ratings sunk to record lows.

Data on who donated how much to each political party is publicly available from Elections Ontario, but the donations are not sorted in a way that reveals who gave the most.
