Are candidates or their agents allowed to access multi-residential properties, such as apartment buildings, condominiums or co-operatives in order to campaign?

The Residential Tenancies Act, the Condominium Act, and the Co-operative Corporations Act permit candidates to have reasonable access to apartment buildings, condominiums, and non-profit housing co-ops if access is necessary for the purpose of canvassing or distributing election material.

The Municipal Elections Act guarantees candidates’ right to access apartment buildings, condominiums, and non-profit housing co-ops between the hours of 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. for the purposes of campaigning at the doors to the apartments, units or houses.
