The Canadian Code of Advertising Standards
Truth. Fairness. Accuracy.
The Canadian Code of Advertising Standards (Code) sets the criteria for acceptable advertising in Canada.
Created by the advertising industry in 1963 to promote the professional practice of advertising, the Code is the cornerstone of advertising self-regulation in Canada.
Administered by ASC, the Code is regularly updated to ensure it is current and contemporary – keeping pace with consumer and societal expectations. It contains 14 clauses that set the criteria for acceptable advertising that is truthful, fair and accurate. These clauses form the basis for the review of consumer and special interest group complaints, and trade disputes.

Boycotting provincial talks on how to protect bees from a controversial pesticide, Ontario grain farmers will hold their own talks instead, starting next week.
Beginning Monday, the Grain Farmers of Ontario will hold invitation-only sessions in Guelph to talk about neonicotinoids, which are applied as a seed coatings to most corn and soybeans planted in the province.
When the group is done, it will present its own recommendations to the province in the hope “that common sense will prevail,” said Barry Senft, who heads the GFO.
The province declared in late November it would have farmers reduce neonic use by 80% in a bid to reduce annual bee mortality to 15%, and would welcome input on how to achieve that by 2016.
