The City of Brampton’s Use of Corporate Resources Policy states that candidates in an election campaign period are not permitted use of a City facility or property (including public squares, workplaces and parks), whether directly or indirectly booked, for any election purpose(s), including campaigning or campaign activities.
Election campaigning is not permitted at non-City events that have been privately booked at a City facility, property or park, as is contrary to the prohibition on election campaigning on City property. Any private booking for use of a City facility, property or park, which is then used for election campaigning or vote solicitation purposes, knowingly or unknowingly, may be refused, cancelled or shut down by the City, as deemed appropriate.
Election campaigning is permitted on public roadways and sidewalks (e.g. operating a vehicle with election signs or using the sidewalk to greet people and solicit support and voting), subject to the election sign provisions of the City’s Sign By-law.
Subject to COVID-19 related health and safety restrictions, attendance and campaigning at a City event on public property may be permitted with limitations (i.e. so long as it is not disruptive to the event as deemed by the City’s event organizer/lead).
Please note that COVID-19 related health and safety restrictions are in effect across the city.
