THIRD PARTY ADVERTISERS
Recent amendments to the Local Authorities Election Act include rules related to finances and accountability of third parties that involve advertising during an election period (May 1 to October 18, 2021), with an advertising message that promotes or opposes the election of a candidate.
Third parties that intend to engage in election advertising are required to register and need to complete Form 27 - Registration of a Third Party and return it to Elections Calgary.
To learn more, we are holding two online information sessions for third party advertisers. The online sessions will be hosted on Microsoft Teams and a computer or mobile device is required to join the presentation.

Both sessions will present the same information; a copy of the presentation will be posted online at a later date.
