Municipal Election

Ontario is in the midst of municipal elections to be held on October 22, 2018. There have been a number of changes to the Municipal Elections Act that impact landlords, condominium corporations, and co-operative housing.

Campaign provisions have been clarified to allow candidates to access apartment buildings, condominiums, non-profit housing co-ops or gated communities from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. in order to campaign.

Importantly, landlords, condominium corporations and co-ops will not be allowed to prohibit tenants or owners from displaying campaign signs on his or her unit, including in their windows. Landlords, condominium corporations and co-ops will be permitted to set reasonable conditions relating to the size or type of signs in relation to an election that may be displayed on the premises and may prohibit signs in common areas of the building or on the common elements.
