 General Rules

  • All candidates and committees must comply with the posting regulations stipulated by each individual University building as well as the regulations of the University of Ottawa with regard to posting on University grounds. It is forbidden to post in staircases, on doors, on floors, on painted walls, on wood, on any transparent surface or over any material already posted, unless specifically indicated in the posting rules.
  • It is strictly prohibited to post campaign materials that cannot be removed without damaging the surface on which they are located. This includes stickers, decals and glues. All costs to clean or repair damages caused by the candidates, their representatives and volunteers will be deducted from the candidate’s budget and refund, and may lead to the SFUO invoicing the candidate.
  • Notwithstanding the wearing of buttons or clothing items, off-campus campaigning of any kind is prohibited. Posted materials are only allowed inside University buildings and all other advertisements must be confined to University grounds.
  • Candidates and committees are prohibited from advertising and organizing house parties or campaigning where alcohol is present or in licensed establishments.
  • Candidates and committees may not use paint or other products to write their names in the snow, grass or any such surface during the campaign period. The candidates and committees must comply with University of Ottawa environmental regulations.
  • All banners and electoral materials must be posted in a way that does not represent a traffic or fire hazard. It is the responsibility of the candidate to ensure that all banners and posters are placed in a safe manner.
  • Candidates and committees shall post no more than one banner per building on campus

According to Communication Services:

  • For safety and cleanliness, posters must be placed only on designated Communication Services’ billboards; therefore, posting is prohibited on painted walls, on doors, windows, stairs and elevators, and on the ceilings and floors. Users must make sure they do not cover posters that are already up.
  • Out of date posters (where the date of the event or the date of the stamp has expired) may be removed.
  • No campaign posters or materials are permitted on any General Information Poster Boards managed by Community Life Services.
  • There is a limit of one (1) poster per candidate or per committee for every wooden-covered concrete pillar in the UCU.
