How to Register


Potential third party advertisers are required to make an appointment with the City Clerk to ensure availability to receive the nomination. Please call or email the City Clerk to make an appointment to file your registration form.

Illegibility to Register

The following are not permitted to register:

  • Municipal election candidates;
  • Federal and Provincial political parties, constituency associations, registered candidates and leadership contestants;
  • Federal and Provincial government, a municipality or local board;
  • Groups, associations or businesses that are not corporations, i.e. neighbourhood associations, clubs or professional associations.  

Requirement to file outside of the City of North Bay

If third party advertisers want to advertise in more than one municipality, they will have to register in each of the municipalities where they intend to advertise.


The registration period for a third party advertiser for the next municipal election is May 2, 2022 to October 21, 2022. The Notice of Registration Form will be available shortly before the registration period opens.

Filing Fee

There is no registration fee for third party advertising, but the City Clerk must examine the registration and then certify the notice of registration if deemed compliant, or reject the registration.
