Third Party Advertisers

The Municipal Elections Act includes rules for third party advertising. A third party advertisement is any ad that promotes, supports or opposes a candidate in an election. Being registered in a municipality allows the third party advertiser to advertise to the voters in that municipality. A third party advertiser can support or oppose any candidate or candidates who will be voted on by the people in that municipality. This includes candidates running for local council, school trustee and candidates running for offices on an upper tier council.

It is important to note that a third party advertiser can only advertise to voters in the municipality where they are registered. There is no limit on the number of municipalities where a third party advertiser can register. If a third party advertiser wants to advertise to voters in more than one municipality they must register in each municipality where they want to advertise.
