What is a Registered Third Party Advertiser?
A Registered Third Party Advertiser (RTPA) is an individual, corporation, or trade union that has registered with the municipality in order to publish advertisements, in any medium, during the municipal election in support of or in opposition to a candidate.
All individuals, corporations, or trade unions that intend to spend money to publish advertisements supporting or opposing a candidate must register with the municipality where they intend to publish advertisements. RTPAs are subject to expense limits between May 1, 2018, and October 22, 2018, and must file financial statements reflecting their activities during the campaign period.
Third party advertisements must contain the following information:
- Name of the registered third party;
- Municipality where the registered third party is registered; and,
- Telephone number, mailing address or email address at which the registered third party may be contacted regarding the advertisement.
Advertising and messaging that does not incur costs (e.g. social media activity) are not considered third party advertisements and are not subject to these requirements.
For more information, refer to the RTPA guide.
