Election - 2018 Registration of Third Party Advertisers

Election - 2018 Registration of Third Party Advertisers

A third party advertisement is an advertisement in any broadcast, print, electronic or other medium that promotes, supports or opposes a candidate, or a "yes" or "no" answer to a question on the ballot (if applicable). Advertisement includes traditional ads as well as materials such as brochures or signs. 

Who can be a third party advertiser?

  • Any person who is a resident in Ontario;
  • A corporation carrying on business in Ontario;
  • A trade union that holds bargaining rights for employees in Ontario. 

A third party advertiser must register with the Township of Lake of Bays. Registrations can be accepted by the Clerk, or a designate, between the 1st day for filing nominations - Tuesday, May 1, 2018, and the Friday before Voting Day in a regular election - October 19, 2018. There is no registration fee for third party advertising, but the Clerk must examine the registration and then certify the notice of registration if deemed compliant, or reject the registration. If third party advertisers want to advertise in more than one municipality, they will have to register in each municipality.


For more information on Registration of Third Party Advertisers, please contact the Clerk.
