Election Signage

Temporary election signage can be placed in public right of ways. There are specific Bylaws that dictate where signs can be placed.

Zoning Bylaw 6-2013 – Section 4.33 Signage:

  • Temporary signs must be self-supporting and must not be attached to any municipal property such as fences, benches, bus shelters, trees, street light poles or traffic signal poles;
  • Signs shall not be located in such a manner as to impede the view of any pedestrian or vehicular right of way, or railway crossing;
  • Where a sign will be located adjacent to a provincial highway, The Highways and Transportation Act will govern placement requirements;
  • Election signage is permitted as temporary signage and is permitted only if it is erected no more than 30 days prior to the date of the election, by-election, referendum or plebiscite and removed 24 hours following the close of voting stations;
  • Signage not requiring a permit shall not exceed 1 m2 (10.76 ft2);
  • Signs which impede or interfere with the repair or maintenance work of Municipal employees on any property owned or controlled by the Municipality may be removed by the Municipality without notice.
  • Ensure you are in compliance with the election signage regulations from the Zoning Bylaw 6-2013.
