With two weeks to go until Election Day, you may have noticed people coming to your door, touting the virtues of their party’s candidate in your area.
And if you live in an apartment or a condo building, you may still see campaigns at your door.
Dorothy Sitek with Elections Canada says candidates and representatives are legally allowed to access multi-residential buildings.
“The Canada elections act does give candidates and their representatives a right to access apartment and condos to canvass at the doors, units or house of those residents.”
Sitek says campaigns should first contact building managers to arrange access.
“Candidates will first contact the building or complex administrator. There is a letter on the Elections Canada website, elections.ca that can be downloaded that outlines the law and its provisions.”
Sitek says the political parties can have access between 9 am and 9 pm, and they’ll have to coordinate with stratas and building managers to find a time convenient to all to enter the building.
