Call on the City to Ban Fossil Fuel Ads!

On March 5th, a group of 15 community organizations asked Ottawa's Finance and Corporate Services Committee to prohibit fossil fuel advertisements in City facilities or sponsorship of City facilities and activities when the City’s Corporate Sponsorship and Advertising policy came up for review. The Committee agreed to study the issue and to ask staff to report back by September this year. This opens the door to a potential ban on fossil fuel advertising.

In the meantime, we want to show City Council that Ottawans want to the City to prohibit fossil fuel advertising and sponsorship in City facilities. Please sign our petition to make your voice heard!

Join our campaign and sign the petition below!

Will you sign?

We the undersigned call on the Mayor and Ottawa City Council to:

  • Amend the City's Advertising Using City Assets and Programs Policy policy to prohibit the City entering into advertising  agreements with external parties that either produce, distribute, or promote fossil fuels  or otherwise spread climate misinformation
  • Amend the City's Sponsorship Policy to prohibit the City entering into agreements with external parties that either produce, distribute, or promote fossil fuels or otherwise spread climate misinformation
  • Support this policy extending to OC Transpo bus advertisements and bus shelters and all other city assets.
