When Should I Complain?


Householders* are permitted under the Act. They may be considered election advertising depending on the date they entered the postal system.

Householders that are distributed during the election period, where the mail-out could not be stopped after the issue of the writ, must be reported to Elections Canada after the election and are subject to the campaign's spending limit.

*'Householder' refers to printed materials distributed by Members of Parliament to communicate their activities and issues to their constituents. (for related items, see Election Advertising – Content, Partisan and election advertising)
