Election Signs By-law Review

The City’s current election sign by-law has been in place since 1997. Since 1997 the by-law has been periodically reviewed and revised to respond to the changing needs and perspectives of the Oshawa community. The by-law establishes regulations respecting the size and placement of signs within the City and is applicable to all election signs associated with municipal, provincial and federal election candidates and referendums and registered third parties.

The Province of Ontario recently introduced changes to the Municipal Elections Act that have consequences for municipal elections and election signs. In order to comply with the changes to the legislation, the City needs to make amendments to the Election Sign By-law. As a result of the changes, it is appropriate to conduct a technical review of the by-law to ensure that it continues to address the needs of the Oshawa community.

Review Details

In advance of the 2018 municipal election, the City of Oshawa is undertaking a review of the City’s Election Signs By-law to ensure that the regulations continue to reflect the needs of residents and other interested stakeholders.
