Third party advertising

A third party advertisement is any broadcast, print or digital ad that supports or opposes a candidate or a “yes” or “no” vote on a question on the ballot. The Municipal Elections Act provides a framework for the registration and financial filing of third party advertising.

Third parties may register with the Clerk’s office from May 2 to October 21, 2022 and must register prior to raising or spending any money in relation to election advertising. For more information please see the following guides:

Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing Third Party Advertiser's Guide 

City of Peterborough Third Party Advertiser's Guide

 

Who can register as a third party advertiser?

Corporations and unions are not permitted to make contributions to candidates. Individuals, corporations and trade unions must register as third party advertisers in the municipality where they want to advertise. If they want to advertise in more than one municipality, they have to register in each municipality. Third party advertising must be
done independently of candidates. Candidates are not able to register as third party advertisers or direct any third party advertiser.

Third parties may register with the Clerk’s office from May 2 to October 21, 2022 and must register prior to raising or spending any money in relation to election advertising.

What is not considered third party advertising?
Advertising that does not cost money to post or broadcast, such as comments made on social media, are not considered to be third party advertising. Third party advertising does not include issues-based advertising; groups that do public outreach can continue their issued-based advocacy work throughout the municipal election period.
Spending limits for third party advertisers

Under the Municipal Elections Act, third party advertisers will be subject to a spending limit that varies by the number of electors in the municipality in which the third party advertiser is registered. O. Reg. 101/97 identifies the following formula for calculating third party spending limits: $5,000 plus $0.05 per elector, to a maximum of $25,000. 

Interim registered third party expense limits will be calculated based on the List of Electors as it existed on September 15, 2018. Final registered third party expenses will be calculated using the number of eligible electors on the List of Electors as it exists on September 15, 2022. Registered third parties may spend to a maximum of whichever calculation is higher.

Under O. Reg. 101/97 of the Municipal Elections Act, third party advertisers will have a spending limit for parties and other expressions of appreciation after Election Day, to be set at ten percent of the third party spending limit.
