flyer example  

The Public Places Bylaw only regulates the unauthorized distribution of printed or promotional material on hotel premises. No one can distribute a handbill, like a pizza flyer,  on hotel premises without the hotel's permission.

Blocking Handbills

To avoid receiving handbills, hotels must place signs at or near all entrances bearing any of the following combinations of words:

  • No Trespassing
  • No Peddlers or Agents 
  • No Advertising
  • No Soliciting 
  • No Handbills

The hotel may also use a similar notice to indicate that they do not wish to have handbills left on its premises. People distributing handbills at hotels without signs will not be punished.
