Can condos prohibit owners from displaying the Canadian Flag?

Article Summary: 

With Canada Day approaching, Canadian flags will start appearing in condominiums. Condo corporations may have rules against displaying items on balconies or in exclusive-use yards, which can conflict with residents' desire to show their maple leaf pride. The National Flag of Canada Act encourages allowing the display of the Canadian flag but does not outright prohibit rules against it. To address this, condo corporations can adopt a rule governing the display of the flag, providing guidelines for size, location, and duration of display while adhering to flag protocol. Taking the flag down promptly after the celebration can avoid compliance issues later on.
