There are many important rules under the Election Act and the Election Finances Act that apply broadly to political entities in Ontario.

This section describes the rules that guide political canvassing and the conduct of surveys. It sets out the terms for political advertising (including blackout periods) and provides detailed information about spending limits, as well as contribution limits and rules for political entities and those who support them.
