Article Summary: 

The Municipal Elections Act, 1996 and the Canada Elections Act allow owners and tenants of condominium units to display an election sign on their premises, but condominium corporations can limit the size or type of sign and forbid signs from being posted on the common elements. If the condominium is being used as a voting place, signs referring to the election must be allowed on the common elements. Candidates or their representatives cannot be prevented from accessing the condominium building for the purpose of canvassing under municipal, provincial, or federal legislation. However, condominium boards should proceed with caution when making rules in relation to election signage, as the change in the law indicates the importance of respecting individual democratic rights.
